Jose Aldo suffered a badly infected toe a week before his fight with Mark Hominick
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.”
