Jose Aldo Out of UFC 149, Faber vs. Barao Moved To Main Event | UFC News
By Jamie McAllister
UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo is out of the UFC 149 main event due to injury.
As UFC 149 is now without the main event the UFC 148 co-main event moves to UFC 149. Urijah Faber vs. Renan Barao has been moved over as the new main event in Calgary.
UFC officials confirmed the moves on Saturday night.
There has been no word if Featherweight challenger Erik Koch will remain on the card following Aldo’s withdrawal. However UFC officials have stated that another fight will be added to the card in the coming days.
UFC 149 has already had to deal with a high profile withdrawal where Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua moved over to headline UFC on Fox 4, while Michael Bisping dropped off the card due to injury as well.
