UFC Jose Aldo

The Comissão Atlética Brasileira de MMA (CABMMA), the governing body who oversaw “UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie,” has medically suspended 22 athletes who competed in Saturday’s event.

After beating “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung in the show’s featured attraction, reigning featherweight king Jose Aldo (pictured) claimed he likely broke his foot after unleashing his first kick of the night.

It turns out Aldo was correct. “Scarface” will be riding the pine for up to three months because of a fractured right foot.

Jung, Phil Davis, Ian McCall and Amanda Nunez were all issued 180-day suspensions, but each can return to action sooner with a doctor’s note.

UFC 163 took place inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
