Jose Aldo did not suffer a broken rib but sustained a bone bruise to his rib and cartilage injury during training.
While Aldo has indicated that he will compete in Las Vegas on July 11, UFC has confirmed a contingency plan. No.1 featherweight contender Chad Mendes will face McGregor for the interim UFC featherweight championship in the event Aldo cannot compete.
Other fighters who were willing to step up and fight Conor included Joseph Duffy, Max Holloway, Frankie Edgar, Dennis Bermudez, and Jeremy Stephens.
Nate Diaz sent a false Tweet saying he was fighting McGregor.
John Dodson will officially get his second crack at flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson. No date is set for the bout.
