UFC 176 Canceled after injury to Jose Aldo

UFC 176 was set to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on August 2, but on Tuesday the company was forced to cancel the event. Thanks to an injury to featherweight champion Jose Aldo, the UFC couldn’t replace the main event on such short notice and decided to cut its losses. It is the second time Zuffa (which owns the organization) has been forced to cancel a major event on short notice.

UFC 176Aldo (24-1) pulled out of the bout thanks to a neck injury. He was scheduled to face Chad Mendes (16-1), who he beat by knockout in 2012. The good news is that the injury will only sideline Aldo for about 45 days, but that obviously wasn’t enough time for him to recover before August 2. Rather than scramble to piece together what would likely be a subpar show, the UFC just bagged it and will move on to UFC 177 (which will retain it’s name/number) on August 30.

The rest of UFC 176’s undercard will be shifted to later dates and most will likely wind up on the UFC 177 card. That show will be headlined by bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw in his rematch against former champ Renan Barao. Dillashaw (10-2) beat Barao (32-1, 1 no contest) by knockout in May to win the title.

Ticket holders for UFC 176 will be given refunds at the point of purchase. The UFC reportedly has plans to return to Los Angeles before the end of 2014 but no specifics have been announced.

Aldo and Mendes’ rematch date is not set yet, but it will likely be sometime early this fall, unless something else comes up.

The UFC pulled a card like this before in 2012 when UFC 151 had to be canceled. In that instance, Dan Henderson suffered a partial rupture of his MCL and had to withdraw from his light heavyweight title bout with Jon Jones. Jones refused to accept a bout with another opponent on short notice and the show was kaput.
