Jose Aldo at WEC 51There have been more than a few occasions where motorcycle accidents have involved prominent professional athletes, and the sport of mixed martial arts joined that scary list over the weekend.

UFC 153 headliner and featherweight champion Jose Aldo was involved in an accident when his motorcycle was struck by a car in traffic in the city of Copacabana, Brazil.

According to a report from O Globo and Tatame.com, Aldo was heading home when he was hit by the car, but luckily only suffered minor injuries.

Aldo endured a few scratches and a swollen foot from the encounter, but according to his coach Andre Pedemeiras they are only minor injuries and will not prevent him from facing Frankie Edgar at UFC 153 in October.

His coach added that Aldo’s motorcycle riding days are over until after his next fight.
