Jose Aldo and Manny Gamburyan at WEC 51And the hits just keep on coming….

Within hours of the news that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was out of UFC 153 due to injury, now UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has fallen by the wayside as well.

According to UFC president Dana White, Aldo has been forced out of his main event bout against Frankie Edgar due to a foot injury.

Aldo was facing Edgar in the main event on the UFC 153 fight card slated for Oct. 13 in Rio. Edgar was already a replacement for Erik Koch, who also fell off the show due to injury.

The main event and co-main event for UFC 153 have now both been scrapped within a couple of hours, and no answers appear ready for what the UFC will do to answer to this latest upheaval.

“Main and co main in the same day!! Another amazing day at the UFC,” wrote White on Twitter. “We have some work to do.”

UFC officials have yet to make any other announcements regarding the UFC 153 card or who will remain to serve as main event or co-main event for the upcoming October show.
