In what has to be seen as a major set back for UFC, the company’s new featherweight champion Jose Aldo is injured and will not be able to defend his title at the company’s January 1st show from Las Vegas.

Also recently suffered a compacted vertebrae in his neck and is seen as one of the top stars joining UFC as part of the company’s formal acquisition of WEC.

After an impressive run as the WEC’s 145-pound champion, Aldo was set to make his UFC debut on New Years day against 22-year-old challenger Josh Grispi at UFC 125 which will feature lightweight champion Frankie Edgar defending against challenger Gray Maynard .
