Jones nursing foot injury, eyes Mar/Apr return


Jon Jones was announced to defend his title against Glover Teixeria at UFC 170, and the next day, he was not. When can we expect to see Jon Jones return to action? MMAFighting has the report:

According to Jones' manager Malki Kawa, Jones "needs a mental and physical break" to recover after a busy 2013, after which Jones expects to resume training in January, with the hopes of entering camp injury-free.

"Jon Jones went back in the gym and just didn't feel good," UFC President Dana White said recently. "He said his legs were still bothering him and his eye is bothering him. He still banged up from that fight.

"That fight wasn't that long ago. It's like being in a car accident."

Gus is fighting March 8 but Jones cant even begin training until Jan. or Feb. so I guess its fair to say Jones took more damage than Gus seems like common logic to me first time I called bs when he played the injury against Evans and waited for them to book Evans vs Davis to say hey im good let me fight a over the hill Rampage jones is ass hat at bestGlover will end up fighting Gus and watch Jones will rematch Evans just watch

I think the first dude was referring to round 5. Jones landed multiple shots, but Gus did block them and they did not have a lot of power behind them.

Jones will time it out so the fight/down times coincide or always be "Injured" when the chance of a rematch with Gus comes up. Jones wants nothing to do with Gus.

when Dana said that nobody gets to go to their boss and say "i need a break, i've got some personal things going on and need to go away for while and then come back" that's not real fucking life...all i could think was that if the top sales person in my organization said he needed double, triple even 10x their normal vacation the bosses would be upset about the lost revenue but be thankful he wasn't leaving for employees and money makers are typically wined and dined and treated nearly as well as the president himself.

You mean on the forearm? Or was it the other 50% of his significant strikes which were light kicks to the knee.
