chan-sung-jung-14.jpgAs pictures indicated, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo suffered a serious foot injury that could keep him out of action for three months.

The UFC 163 medical suspensions, which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently requested and today received, indicate Aldo has been given a 90-day term, including 60 days with no contact for a fracture of his right foot.

Chan Sung Jung, who challenged Aldo at this past Saturday’s pay-per-view event, could be out even longer. He was suspended 180 days or until cleared by a doctor for a shoulder dislocation that helped bring a halt to the title fight in the fourth round when Aldo took advantage after seeing the injury and earned a TKO stoppage.

UFC 163 took place at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. Its main card aired live on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

The Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) issued the medical suspensions, which covered all 24 fighters on the card.

In the night’s co-main event, light heavyweight Phil Davis unanimously outpointed Lyoto Machida in a controversial decision. Davis received six-month suspension for a possible right foot injury and needs doctor clearance to return. Machida, meanwhile, was suspended 30 days with 21 days no contact.

The full list of UFC 163 medical suspensions include:

  • Jose Aldo: suspended 90 days with 60 days no contact for fracture in right foot
