Last week, the MMA community raised concerns over Jose Aldo after photos emerged of ‘Scarface’ looking extremely gaunt ahead of his bantamweight debut against Marlon Moraes at UFC 245.
We’re now less than 24 hours out from the weigh-ins in Las Vegas, and more photos have been released showing Aldo looking gaunter than ever before.
Take a look below.
Can he make it? Aldo’s team at Nova Uniao certainly seem to think so, as BJPenn.com’s Chris Taylor reports that Aldo’s coaches and cornermen say the former UFC featherweight king is on schedule to make weight tomorrow.
I just spoke with some friends inside the Nova Uniao camp. They are very confident that Jose Aldo will make 136lbs tomorrow: “He’s basically already there”— Chris Taylor (@CTaylor_96) December 12, 2019
“He’s basically already there,” a member of Aldo’s team said on Thursday.
Aldo will take on fellow Brazilian Marlon Moraes on the UFC 245 main card and, if he wins, the former pound-for-pound No. 1 is expected to challenge two-division champ Henry ‘Triple C’ Cejudo for the bantamweight title.
UFC 245, which features a headlining welterweight title bout between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington, takes place this Saturday, Dec. 14 at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas.
