Jose Aldo Hospitalized, But Match With Chad Mendes Is Still A Go

Jose Aldo was hospitalized earlier today, but is still expected to defend his featherweight title against Chad Mendes at UFC 179 on October 25.

The fighter was diagnosed with kidney stones and was released today as well.

“Aldo has this renal calculi issue since he was 16 years old. After his fight against ‘Korean Zombie,’ he also expelled a stone. Same thing last week,” Aldo’s coach and manager Andre Pederneiras said. “It started with a little pain, he was then hospitalized, took some serum and anti-inflammatory, and then he expelled the stone.”
