Jose Aldo Battled Toe Infection at UFC 129, Coach Credits Hominick’s Performance

Jose AldoUFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo battled through a toe infection to earn a unanimous decision win over Mark Hominick at UFC 129 on Saturday, but the Brazilian’s team credits Hominick and not the illness for the close fight.

“He suffered a cut on his toe [on April 23] and it got infected with bacteria… I can’t say whether [the fact Aldo took antibiotics] affected his performance. I’m not a doctor,” Nova Uniao’s Andre Pederneiras told Sherdog. “I prefer to give credit to Hominick’s effort for taking the fight that deep, rather than saying if the medicine affected him or not.”
