Jon Jones suffered a gnarly broken toe at UFC 159 in his bout versus Chael Sonnen. While pushing off the canvas, the pressure caused the big toe in his left foot to break hard, ripping the skin and exposing the bone. You can relive the break in the GIF below:
Jones only realized the toe was broken after commentator Joe Rogan pointed it out during the post-fight interview. Jones was treated in the cage and back stage before eventually making it to the hospital. Some doctors criticized the immediate treatment of the injury, but it looks as though Jones is healing properly and on his way to recovery. He tweeted a couple updates this morning:
The alignment of my bones are healing spot on and the skins closing with no infections
