Jose Aldo Injured, Out of UFC 176

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will be unable to defend his title against Chad Mendes on August 3.

The fight was scheduled to be the main event at UFC 176.

Aldo (23-1) suffered a spine and shoulder injury while training for his title defense. There is no word of a replacement fight for Chad Mendes yet.

Aldo has successfully defended his title five times since winning it over Mark Hominick back in 2011.  He was once ranked as a possible contender for best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, however recent injuries have made it tough for the featherweight champion to defend his title regularly.
