UFC 159: Jones Rocks Sonnen Despite Badly Broken Toe! [Photo] [Video]

Chael Sonnen vs Jon Jones

“I wasn’t planning on breaking my big toe,” said Jones, who successfully defended his title for the fifth consecutive time, equalling the UFC light-heavyweight record of Tito Ortiz. “I was just trying to get back at Chael Sonnen. I really wanted to silence Chael Sonnen and I think I did the job. – espn

“I looked down and saw blood,” Jones said. “The closer I looked, I saw that my toe was upside down. Maybe it’s not that serious of an injury. Who knows?” – foxsports

Complete Review of UFC 159 including undercard fights


on Jones is uncanny, almost mutant like, and rocked Chael Sonnen in the first round of the highly anticipated MMA-UFC 159 bout at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ last night! Jones gruesomely broke his toe (pic above), and interestingly enuff would have lost the bout if Sonnen had lasted another 27 seconds to finish the first round! Jones joked about how “he was suppose to go to Jamaica after this,” referring to his compound fractured big toe, in the post-game interview (video below)! Jones took down Sonnen three times before he finally nailed him to the ground and kept hitting him in the face with hard elbows! Jones improved to 18-1, is the youngest light-heavyweight champion in history at 25 years old, and now has tied Tito Ortiz for successfully defending his title belt five times! Sonnen (27-13-1) talked a lot of smack and did fair well against Anderson Silva in two recent losses, but Jon Jones is on another level, more of a Mike Tyson to MMA!
