Jose Aldo defended his featherweight belt with a broken foot, already making him tougher than the average man. Now, a report out of Brazil shows how ridiculously tough the man is. Aldo also had kidney stones.
He checked into a hospital in Rio de Janeiro this week to deal with the kidney stones, a problem he has had before. The Mayo Clinic says kidney stones bring with them severe pain in the abdomen. Even if the stones were just starting to become a problem on Saturday, it's a whole lot to deal with while also fighting Chan Sung Jung with a broken foot.
