Despite initial assumptions that Jon Jones suffered a compound fracture of his left big toe during his UFC 159title defense against Chael Sonnen, the injury was later determined to be a dislocation. (You know, kind of like how Miesha Tate didn’t actually get her arm snapped in half by Ronda Rousey, despite all visual evidence to the contrary.) Dr. Robert Klapper, Chief Orthopedic Surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, appeared on yesterday’s installment of UFC Tonight to explain Jones’s injury, and give his insight on the recovery process, which doesn’t sound so bad, considering how ugly things looked on Saturday.

Damn is that gross. I hope they are right about this 6 to 8 weeks thing. Would be great to see him get back in there as soon as possible.

GTFO!

It was on backwards.

Whoever JJ got to fix his toe needs to do Shogun's knees.

I really don't see how that wasn't broken. His toe was mangled. I was playing poker and we all had to take a smoke break after seeing that.

That's good.

Jones ain't gonna be a LHW much longer, I hope he stays active while he is there. He's bigger than most HWs, and could easily build and weigh around 240-250 in fight shape.

I hope he gets 2 more LHW fights, an Anderson Silva fight around the turn of the year, and then some time up to bulk up to his future as a HW.

A Bones vs Cain fight would be wicked

Out of all the champ vs. champ fights, I'd say Jones vs. Cain and Aldo vs. Benson are the most likely to occur.

But I would love to See Jones vs Silva first.
