Aldo suffers injury, forced out of title defense
Multiple sources close to the fight confirmed the news with HeavyMMA.com on Monday afternoon.
Aldo’s injury is believed to be a minor setback and the featherweight champion will be able to fight by mid-September. Mendes plans on taking a fight instead of waiting for the September title shot.
Note: The Aldo/Mendes bout was never signed or officially announced, only in the planning stages.
