Jose Aldo On The Path To Medical Clearance For UFC 189

Last week the main event for UFC 189 was in question after Jose Aldo obtained an injury while training. This week Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Bob Bennett has spoken and and said he believes it is “highly unlikely” that Aldo will not be medically cleared. Heres what he had to say:

“Right now, according to Dr. Trainor’s communications with Dr. Davidson, it appears Aldo had a rib contusion and a cartilage injury, Dr. Trainor is currently awaiting to see the medical documents and at this point in time, we think it is highly unlikely Aldo will have any trouble competing. Dr. Trainor has told me this type of injury (rib contusion) is fairly common and usually improves within a few days. We already have Dr. Trainor in communication with the UFC and we are making sure Aldo’s injury is not going to prevent him from fighting, We’re already working on it now.”
