Jose Aldo Has Kidney Stones, In Addition to His Broken Foot [OUCH]

Just days after successfully defending his UFC featherweight championship, Jose Aldo was hospitalized for kidney stones. MMA Fighting passed along word of Aldo’s condition, reporting that the Brazilian fighter was diagnosed on Tuesday and spent time at a hospital in Rio:

Dr. Marcio Tannure, the UFC’s doctor in Brazil, told that the UFC featherweight champion was taken to Copa D’Or hospital in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro and diagnosed with kidney stones Tuesday. UOL first reported the news.”

Tannure went on to say that he is unsure of whether Aldo has already passed the stones or not and is waiting to hear from the champ’s camp. Aldo also broke his foot against Chan Sung Jung at UFC 163 and is not expected to fight again until 2014.

This writer has never had kidney stones but has known folks who have. And, judging from the apparent pain they were in, we’re willing to bet Aldo is dealing with some pain slightly below Tito Ortiz’s cracked skull but definitely above Jon Jones’ mangled toe. Reportedly, Aldo has had stones before.

Get well soon, Jose.

- Elias Cepeda

The thing about a kidney stone is, it hurts so bad you think you are going to die and you don't care that you will because that is the only way the pain will end. I have seen cops in the hospital try to kill themselves with their weapon over the pain. @Xanderschultz- this happens to fighters not only because of the weight cuts (dehydration) it also happens because of all the supplements they take. @ friedtaco: a kidney stone is worse than childbirth because you don't get an epidural with a kidney stone!

I once took a very large poop, so I know what he's going through.

Does this happen because of weight cutting. Wrestlers seem to get kidney stones all the time.

“Hey bro…sorry about your pee-hole.”

I can't even count how many times I have heard that.
