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.

    Djöfullinn sjálfur!!!

    I’m pissed off right now. If I read next month that Hendo is out of the Jones fight because of an injury then someone will get hurt. I hated it when my favorite fighters get injured.

      Now I know some cuss words in Icelandic!!! I’ll use them soon and often…..
      Aldo is good, but really hasn’t had the toughest challenge. Florian won the first round and Hominick showed what a better boxer can do to him, but to beat him a real good wrestler boxer will do it (Mendes was too raw and doesn’t have boxing yet). My vote is for Frankie. I see him beating Aldo up. Quicker feet, better boxer and better wrestler. The only thing Aldo has is punching power on him, but you need to be flat footed to have power. Edgar beats him UD r5 easily. Aldo wouldn’t even dare going to 55, those guys are deep and way to good wrestlers for Aldo. He will only go to 55 when he has brought in enough wrestling and trained to where he thinks he can prevent takedowns from the top 5.

      you know the j in felagi makes ALL the difference in getting that Italian chef out of my head…Thx…

        You really don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re saying Aldo’s takedown defense isn’t good enough yet? His takedown defense is at least one of the best and arguably the best in the UFC.

        Only thing Aldo has is punching power? You’re talking about the man with the most frightning legkicks in the UFC.

        About the 55 division: Aldo has already said he wanted to move up, cause he beat every notable featherweight already.

        Oh and your precious Frankie Edgar already turned down the chance to fight Aldo for the title, he is too scared to fight him.

        I know wrestling is your thing and there’s nothing wrong with that, but please stick to the facts.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          WHAT? His takedown is one of the best in the UFC??? Now you are into your blind zombie mode again. Yah its sooo good that’s why he brought Maynard in for 3 months before Mendes…Come on now, let’s get real. He knows he’s weak. Yah the featherweights are such a STRONG division isn’t it. Then why hasn’t he fought in the lw yet? He’s been offered bro?? I’ll tell you why because his wrestling suuuuucks, that;s why. He knows he’s not good enough. BJ would maul him at lw and so would most of the top 10.

          Yah he;s a leg kicking bitch all right. a wrestler is his kryptonite, That’s why he won’t go to lw where the big boys will grab his leg and pull it off.

          Edgar turned it down because he wants to go down as the champ and thinks he can beat Bendo. He has earned his chance. Aldo wants no part of Frankie.

          Since you are fact driven, supposedly, then these are the facts. You just just hate wrestling and its obvious how you spin everything….

        • Xaninho says:

          You’re making up your ‘facts’. Anyone knows or at least can look up the facts i mentioned.

          You mean go to LW where gigantic weightcutting wrestling bitches will Lay n Pray on better fighters using their huge size differences?

          wrestler is his Kryptonite? Did you even see the Aldo-Mendes fight? Mendes was the wrestling wonderboy, well we’ve all seen what happened. no takedowns and a sweet knee in his face.

          Now you can comment with some more made up ‘facts’.

      • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

        Frankie even said himself that he was not excited about moving down to 145 because Aldo was there. The fact that Frankie is more eager to fight Bendo who destroyed him in their first bout says it all.
        Aldo would destroy his legs like he did to Faber. Frankie really felt Bendo’s kick can you imagine what’s going to happen when Aldo starts kicking Frankie? OK it’s possible that Frankie would grab a leg and take him down but he would never be able to hold Aldo down, NEVER!
        After Aldo beats the Zombie then he needs to move up and face a guy like Bendo that would be fantastic fight and is actually my dream fight today. Bendo is the only fighter I can see causing problems for Aldo.
        So I 100% agree with Xaninho on this one, Frankie would never beat Aldo.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Now I know you and X are up the Brazilians ass and think these guys are the best. (No offense meant on the “up the ass” thing, its just how I talk to my friends, hell the best man at my wedding is a real “prick” and I love the guy) I know, I know the phone poster’s tell me that I write too much..I’m working on it.

          First, Aldo is good and Frankie knows it and he NEVER said he didn’t want to go to featherweight CUZ Aldo was there. He said he was the champ and he felt good about fighting at lw (shit most of the top lw are better than Aldo). Why cut? Now Bendo beat him and you have taken liberty saying he “destroyed” him cuz of your bias. That was BY NO MEANS destroyed..So come on now…So Frankie thinks he can beat Bendo and he deserves his rematch and he is getting it even though, as X, takes HUGE LEAPS OF OPINION thinking it means he’s scared of Aldo, is wrong. X you are once again, looking at from your bias about how Frankie thinks and feels…and you know it.

          Frankie IMO will fight Aldo at 45 if he loses to Bendo, If he beats him at 55 then Aldo will need to step up or Frankie will keep fighting at 55 until he gets beat….
          Now, I think Aldo will not go to 55 anytime soon and when Frankie does go to 45, I hope Aldo is still there, because Frankie will take those kicks of Aldo and lift that leg to the sky and banana split him to the ground where Aldo IS FRIGHTENED to go…Don;t know if Frankie can keep him there but it just gives him another reason to drop him again. Frankie beats him easily.

          Have you guys actually watched Aldo lately, he has a few holes in his game that a good wrestler will exploit and a good boxer can exploit. Frankie is a better boxer than Aldo too, plus he’s faster. So Frankie is a better wrestler, a better boxer and is quicker and Aldo can kick….and you think Aldo wins???? Okey Dokey….

          Bendo beats Aldo too cuz one thing a sissy leg kicker hates is being kicked back!!! Everywhere else, Bendo is bigger and stronger.

          Lastly, X (I am tying to get that spelled right, but X is just easier). You have this very annoying trait where you take facts and spin them with your opinion to justify your opinions as facts. Now that may work in your world, but in the real world it is easily seen as such. And your stubbornness doesn’t seem to allow you to separate them. I actually think that you probably NEVER think you are wrong, No???

          These Brazilians are not that good….

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          Have you seen the asses on those Brazilian women? They are fantastic and I would love to be up in a Brazilian ass.

          Brazilians are much better in MMA then the Americans. Although my favorite all-time fighter is Hendo I generally prefer the Brazilians both the fighters and the women.

          I can’t see Frankie beating Aldo but I guess we will not find that out until they fight. Plain and simple.

          Bendo will give Frankie a serious beating in their next bout and after that Frankie will move down and hopefully face Aldo. I just hope that Frankie won’t have to retire after the beating Bendo is going to give him.

          But promise me that you won’t use the excuse that Frankie has simply been in too many wars when Aldo finally faces him and destroys him.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          @Hjortur…Yah they do have nice badonkadonk’s (long version for ass) (the only good about Brazil is their women, their fighters are just ok), but i disagree, the US has the most beautiful women in the world, of course Icelandic women maybe very beautiful too, I just can’t think if I have every seen an Icelandic woman.
          Now plz Bendo is good and I like him and he will probably win, BUT your assertion he will knock Frankie into retirement…now I know your using hyperbole but let’s get real here….Frankie must have caught every kick he threw and you don’t think Frankie is adjusting to use that caught leg as a weapon?? He will grab that leg and rip it off of Bendo…and then beat him with it if Bendo is not careful.

          I tell you what if Aldo does to Frankie what you think he will, then I will NOT apologize for him and i will TELL EVERYBODY FROM THE HIGHEST tower that you were right and I was wrong!! But when Frankie does this to ALDO I expect the same crow eating from you!!! K???

  4. cntybollax says:

    it is actually starting to take the piss the amount of main events changed due to injury or ped abuse.

  5. Faaris Sheikh says:

    Ffs…. Whats up with the fighters and getting all these injuries when they are scheduled to fight…

  6. CoolDownInTrainingFUCK says:

    WTF is going on ?!?! Are they fucking sparring with concrete gloves ?!

  7. jbeamazing says:

    I hate how the media avoids the injury list and just talks about ppv buys are down.Well no shit everybody is hurt

  8. B-rad says:

    give zombie the fight

  9. Matt G says:

    Throw Charles Oliviera in there!

  10. Clay says:

    How come Todd Duffee got cut because of an injury but no one else does? Common man bring him back

  11. WrestlingRules says:

    Shit I don’t care…I just want to see Edgar beat the shitouta Aldo…

    • Xaninho says:

      Edgar wants none of that. He turned down the offer.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Do you live in a vacuum? Tell me why Edgar turned it down?. Man you are arrogant…You say you aren’t liberal, but you are and just haven’t come out of the closet yet….

        • Xaninho says:

          He turned down the offer. Can’t put it more simple or understandable. He was offered an immediate titlefight but refused the offer.

          Political views have nothing to do with MMA by the way. So I don’t know why you keep bringing that up.

          I’ve already told you my political views can’t be put in boxes like ‘liberal’, ‘conservative’, ‘communism’, or whatever.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          X – you are just intellectually dishonest in your arguments and can’t admit it when you are wrong….

          And you may have no real political views as such, but your words really clearly show how you believe and most liberals are opinionated and spin facts to fit their opinions like you do.

          I know you are smart and a good person (IMO no facts here) but you hit this bias ceiling and then that’s it you don’t go ay higher……Your words say that….

          My guess is you have never really wrestled much, therefore, you are not very familiar with what it brings to a fight as THE only base to the game….I don’t know if your are lucky enough to live in the US, but if you do, try wrestling for awhile once you get over your gag reflex from the deep seeded hatred you have for it….
