Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett told ESPN tonight in the following quotes that the commission “think it is highly unlikely Aldo will have any trouble competing”

NSAC consulting physician Dr. Timothy Trainor told Bennett that “this type of injury is fairly common and usually improves within a few days”.

“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.”

“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.”
