There’s only one little drawback.
Aldo was lately hospitalized with a leg an infection and his standing stays unknown. Whereas “Junior” was finally launched and permitted to renew gentle coaching, he nonetheless wants to complete his antibiotics after which be reevaluated by a doctor earlier than getting cleared to compete.
“Once I acquired to the hospital I used to be solely purported to be there for an evening after which the antibiotics they gave me didn’t work,” Aldo instructed MMA Combating (transcribed by BJPenn.com). “In order that they waited one other two days till they switched the antibiotics which began to work. Clearly, I thought of not having the ability to struggle and I nonetheless can’t say that I’m going to struggle as a result of I must go to the physician and get re-evaluated. However we’re doing every part we are able to and hopefully, I’ll get healed up.”
In case “Junior” is unable to reply the decision, UFC matchmakers can dangle up and dial once more.
“I’m simply ready for a name,” the No. 5-ranked Renato Moicano instructed MMA Junkie. “I heard about Jose Aldo can’t struggle in Rio (and if he can’t) possibly I can struggle with Volkanovski. I don’t know if Aldo can’t, however I’m able to go. I need to struggle with a high man. It may be Zabit, it may be Volkanovski, Brian Ortega — I don’t select. If UFC put I’ll struggle.”
Moicano was stopped by Aldo at UFC Battle Night time 144 again in February, in what marked simply the second defeat of his skilled combined martial arts (MMA) profession. No query Volkanovski — unbeaten since 2013 — could be a formidable check for both fighter.
