Andre Pederneiras, the coach for UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, confirmed that “Scarface” escaped a car-motorcycle accident in Brazil over the weekend with no serious injuries. Aldo was hit by a car while riding his motorcycle.
Aldo is expected to be fine to face Frankie Edgar at UFC 153: Aldo vs. Edgar in October. The bout will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“Our only concern is the swollen foot, but there was no fracture,” said Pederneiras, in an interview with Tatame.com. “He is gonna rest this week and get back to training next week.”
Pederneiras added that Aldo suffered a few scratches in his “knee, leg and butt, but we believe there won’t be a problem.”
