That was close.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo was hit by a car over the weekend while traveling on his motorcycle in Brazil. "Junior" was unharmed during the accident, but his coach, Andre Pederneiras, has instructed his star pupil to stay off the streets for the next few weeks.

Fighters Only has the report:

Teammates Luis Ramos and Alexandre Baixinho, who live close to the place where "Scarface" was involved in the car crash, showed up immediately and took Aldo to the gym for a meet with head coach Andre Pederneiras.

After checking that everything was OK with Jose, "Dede" recommended his athlete only to take taxis until October 13th, the date in which he will face off Frankie Edgar.

Whew.

Considering this is the same type of accident that nearly ended the career of UFC Heavyweight Frank Mir, Aldo is lucky to escape unscathed. I'm sure Frankie Edgar is also relieved, considering "The Answer" recently opted to fill in for the injured Erik Koch at UFC 153 on Oct. 13 in Rio.

All's well that ends well.
