UFC Tonight Insider Ariel Helwani announced that UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo is injured and out of his UFC 176 rematch against Chad Mendes.

Aldo has been battling injuries in between fights for a while now, and injuries have only allowed him to compete six times in four years since joining the UFC roster. Helwani didn’t share what the injury was, but Aldo has dealt with a foot and neck injuries in the past among other things.

There’s no word on if the UFC 176 event will get a new main event or if Mendes will fight someone else in the time being. The co-main event is slated to feature a middleweight bout between top 10 middleweight fighters Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
