The Nevada State Athletic Commission Requests Jose Aldo’s Medical Records


We’ve all heard about the UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo’s “rib injury.” With 2 weeks before he is supposed to defend his title against the notorious Conor McGregor the NAC’s consulting physician, Timothy Trainor, has requested the champions medical documents from the UFC.
Earlier last week teh UFC released a statement saying that Aldo had suffered a bone bruise and cartilage damage. Since then, there have been multiple reports about the severity of Aldo’s injury, including that it is fractured. Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett said, “Right now, according to Dr. Trainor’s communications with Dr. Davidson, it appears Aldo had a rib contusion and a cartilage injury. Dr. Trainor is currently awaiting to see the medical documents and at this point in time, we think it is highly unlikely Aldo will have any trouble competing. Dr. Trainor has told me this type of injury (rib contusion) is fairly common and usually improves within a few days.” He went on to say, “We already have Dr. Trainor in communication with the UFC and we are making sure Aldo’s injury is not going to prevent him from fighting. We’re already working on it now. We’ve been discussing this for the last week, going back and forth, trying to get documents. Upon further medical review of Aldo’s documents, we will have a confirmed answer.
So it looks like we’re going to have to wait and see if the Aldo vs. McGregor fight may will happen.
