Dana White: Jose Aldo 'did not have a broken rib,' the x-rays he released showed an 'old injury'
LAS VEGAS -- Dana White doubled down Friday on the idea that Jose Aldo withdrew from UFC 189's main event against Conor McGregor with a bruised rib and cartilage, and not the broken rib many believed after Aldo's team released x-rays of the injury that sunk the biggest featherweight fight in UFC history less than two week's out from fight night.
"So what happened was, when the pictures went out onto the internet, right, and you saw this rib down here, that was an old injury," the UFC president said. "That was an old injury that was calcified white. The real injury was the bruised rib and cartilage. He had a bruised rib and cartilage. And the big problem for Aldo in taking the fight, wasn't the fight. It was making weight.
"He had to cut something like 24 pounds, and if he couldn't physically do it the way that he does it, he was afraid that he couldn't make weight," White continued. "That was really the issue. But he did not have a broken rib. It was a bruise. Every x-ray he sent out was of an old injury. What you saw right there on his body was an old injury, not a new injury.
"It wasn't UFC doctors (who cleared him), either. It was three different doctors."
