"It was such a really tough task for me to convince him not to fight. He wanted to fight anyway. He was really excited to make his UFC debut, but I told him [fighting] in such a crisis state, he may have really serious problems.

Pederneiras said Aldo's been feeling pain in his right arm right a long time but finally got it looked it. He believes after a month of physiotherapy that Aldo will be able to make his UFC debut in about three months.
Aldo (18-1 overall, 8-0 WEC), defeated Mike Brown for the WEC featherweight title at WEC at WEC 44 and defended the title two times before the WEC was absorbed by the UFC last month.
