Apparently the reason why UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo looked under the weather at UFC 129 in Toronto this past weekend, was due to a badly infected toe he suffered a week before the fight which required a heavy dosage of antibiotics.
Nova Uniao leader, Andre Pedemeiras, speaking via Sherdog.com, said:
“He suffered a cut on his toe [on April 23] and it got infected with bacteria. He went through heavy medical treatment with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory pills from Sunday to Tuesday. He took the heavy dosage so that he wouldn’t have to take more drugs closer to the fight. I can’t say whether [the fact Aldo took antibiotics] affected his performance. I’m not a doctor. I prefer to give credit to Hominick’s effort for taking the fight that deep, rather than saying if the medicine affected him or not.”
