We are still waiting for official word as to whether UFC champion Jose Aldo is out of his scheduled bout with Conor McGregor. On Tuesday, news came out saying Aldo fractured a rib and might not be able to fight. We know that he did get injured, from an interview his coach did with a Brazilian news outlet, but we are not sure if he will fight.

So, if he is out, that would make 5 times that the champion has pulled out of fights due to injury.

Check out a full breakdown below:

1: UFC 125- Aldo pulls out of title fight with Josh Grispi due to injury. He would then fight and defeat Mark Hominick at UFC 129.

2.UFC 149-Aldo pulls out of title fight with Erik Koch due to injury. The fight was rescheduled, Koch pulled out with injury, replaced by Frankie Edgar at UFC 153.

3.UFC 153- Aldo pulls out of fight with Frankie Edgar due to injury. Fight rescheduled to 156.

4.UFC 176- Aldo pulls out of re-match with Chad Mendes due to injury. Fight rescheduled to UFC 179.

5.**UFC 189-Aldo pulls out of fight with Conor McGregor due to injury.

 

**This isn’t a sure thing, but all signs are pointing to this being the case.
