UFC News: update on Jose Aldo injury situation

By Dave Meltzer,

Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting tweeted Tuesday that Jair Lourenco, Jose Aldo's coach at Nova Uniao, was on the television show Revista Combate in Brazil. Laurenco said that the rib injury Aldo suffered was "complicated," and that under normal circumstances, he would need one month to heal, but he wants to go through with his featherweight title fight with Conor McGregor in less than three weeks on Saturday, July 11th.

Rather than putting the champion in when he shouldn't be fighting, they should move the fight, which is really easy for me to say when the promotion has a U.S. record gate and record setting expenses in building their current date.
