It was reported today that Jose Aldo has suffered a fractured rib whilst sparring. The news was broken by Brazillian reporter Ana Hissa and comes just weeks out of the scheduled fight between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor at UFC 189.
The first reports came yesterday when reporter Ana Hissa tweeted “Just talk to @dedepederneiras and @josealdojunior aldo is NOT hurt. “It would be McGregor’s dream, but it’s not true” he said #ufc189.
The second tweet came today stating – “Aldo injured during sparring session, exams confirm fractured rib”
So far the UFC nor Jose Aldo have made a statement on if this report is true. There has also been no update on if the bout between Aldo and McGregor is still going ahead. If this report is true then it is unlikely that Jose Aldo will be able to fight at UFC 189.
