That Jose Aldo (pictured) sure has some stones on him … literally. Not only did the reigning UFC featherweight king continue fighting with a broken right foot for roughly 17 minutes in successfully defending his throne Saturday against “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung, but it appears he also did it with kidney stones.
Dr. Marcio Tannure, the UFC’s physician in Brazil, told UOL Tuesday that Aldo was taken to Copa D’Or hospital in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro and was diagnosed with kidney stones.
“I learned about this problem with Andre [Pederneiras, Aldo’s coach],” Tannure said to MMAFighting. “He had renal calculus (kidney stones) before. He needs to send me the results of the exams so I can check it. Andre told me it’s not serious, and he probably already expelled the stones.”
Well, what else could it be?
Kidney stones are no laughing matter, but I never miss a chance to throw out a “Friends” reference – in everyday life or professionally, apparently.
Aldo will have plenty of time to heal from passing the stones. “Scarface” was issued a 90-day medical suspension yesterday for the broken foot he suffered after unleashing his first kick at UFC 163.

Although the main event failed to live up to the expected fireworks, it still provided a relatively entertaining scrap, there was also a Light Heavyweight robbery, a return to form from a Brazilian Middleweight as well as an exciting Flyweight scrap.
The idea of the Camel Clutch Blog has never been about pro wrestling and MMA. I wanted to have a platform to write about whatever I (or others) enjoyed. Unfortunately if you are a UFC fan than you will probably see less MMA blogs from me and that is not by accident.
Both the featherweight champion and challenger are likely to face significant time resting and recovering from injuries after UFC 163.
Divisional kingpin Jose Aldo isn't expect to return until 2014 after breaking his foot on his first kick of the fight. Aldo suffered immediate swelling during the bout but altered his usually kick-heavy style in favor of punches, takedown and...
Sometimes greatness is hard to recognize, even when it is right in front of our faces. It will sometimes happen because it is so subtle that it is hard to see it. In other cases, we get too used to it. We have seen it over and over again. When a fighter like Jose Aldo only has one or two spectacular moves in a fight, we think of it as being ordinary almost. Even one he dominated...
