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.
