The dreaded injury bug hit UFC 153's main event (Jose Aldo) and co-main event (Quinton Jackson) in the span of an hour on Tuesday, and as of Wednesday morning, no replacements have been announced.

A visibly frustrated UFC president Dana White briefly spoke to Yahoo! Sports moments after the disappointing news broke.

"I gotta fix it now," he said. "I have time to fix this one, and we'll figure something out."

Watch the White interview below, where he also states that Frankie Edgar, who was supposed to fight Aldo for the UFC featherweight title, was "devastated" after hearing the news.
