When it rains, it pours for the UFC. UFC president Dana White announced on Twitter Tuesday that UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson are both off the UFC 153: Aldo vs. Edgar card with injuries.
“Main and co-main in the same day!!” White posted. “Another amazing day at the UFC. We have some work to do.”
Aldo was set to face Frankie Edgar in the main event from the October card in Brazil. Jackson was believed to be making his final UFC appearance against Glover Teixeira on the night, but that appears to be on the shelf, as well.
“Scarface” was involved in a motorcycle accident recently. It was reported at the time that Aldo escaped with just minor injuries, but there was mention of a swollen foot suffered.
Replacement fighters or fights have yet to be announced by the UFC.
