UFC featherweight Chan Sung Jung separated his shoulder on Saturday night in his showdown with champion Jose Aldo but “The Korean Zombie” wasn’t the only member of the match-up to suffer a serious injury in the affair. Aldo hinted at having hurt his foot during the post-event press conference and now his head coach has confirmed the 26-year old star broke at least one bone.
Nova Uniao head Andre Pederneiras spoke to MMAFighting, explaining the damage occurred on “the first kick he threw landed on (Jung’s) knee”. Aldo is expected to need 2-3 months to recover before resuming training activities meaning his 2013 campaign is likely over.
Aldo improved his overall record to 23-1 with the TKO victory over Jung at UFC 163. He is now 5-0 as 145-pound king.
