Aldo will take on Erik Koch at UFC 153

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

The Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC has given confirmation to the weeks of rumor going around when it issued a statement which stated that Jose Aldo, the UFC Featherweight champion will indeed take on Erik Koch at UFC 153 in the main event. The event that takes place on the 13th of October in Brazil, the home of Aldo will feature one of the most dominant forces in the company taking on a worthy opponent in the form of Koch.

The match between the two was slated to be held as a co-main event at UFC 149: Cain Velasquez v/s Anderson Silva, slated to be held on the 1st of September, at Las Vegas, Nevada, United States of America. However, Aldo pulled out of the fight after he sustained an injury while training for the match, which forced him to pull out of the event. But now, it has been confirmed that Jose Aldo is doing light training and his trainers are hopeful that he will be able to make it back to full fitness in time for the title clash against Koch.

Koch himself has also been very unlucky with injuries, not seeing any action for almost a year now. The last time Aldo went back to his native of Brazil, it was earlier in the year when was defending his title against Chad Mendes, and he won the match via a total knockout just before the end of the first round. His minor thigh injury that forced him out of UFC 149 is said to have healed properly, but since there are always chances of a relapse, the UFC did not take any chances and scheduled the match for a later date.

And this will probably please Jose Aldo as he returns to Brazil, which has always been a happy hunting ground for him.
