UFC 163: Aldo Vs Jung is all wrapped up, and in the main event it was Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo Jr who defended his title in front of his countrymen in Brazil. While Aldo was clearly winning the fight on points, Jung was landing more and more strikes, but then disaster struck. When Aldo threw a right hook, Jung through a left and their limbs intertwined. The impact would result in Jung’s shoulder popping out of its socket. While Jung went to pop it back in place, Aldo saw the blood in the water and swarmed and finished Jung. Jung was in serious pain in the octagon, but Jung said at the post fight press conference he feels fine.
Jung told the media:
“I felt like my strategy was starting to work, in particular in the fourth round. I was starting to turn up the intensity. Unfortunately, when I separated my shoulder, I tried to put it back in myself, but it didn’t work, and I think Jose noticed my shoulder was out, and he kicked me three times really hard. So unfortunately, the shoulder was not able to be put back in.”
“It was really painful when it first separated, but they took us back to the medical room, and they popped it back into place. It feels OK.”
