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:

Phone Post

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

Loving my new heavy duty boot!! great news from the doctors today pic.twitter.com/zb5cG7mWEl

Damn, was the gif necessary for this news? lol

Glad to hear this, tho. Any ideas when he might be able to step back in the cage?

This is the first time I have seen this.  Is that the actual bone poking out, or is that the bottom & side of his toe just snapping sideways?

Unwariestpickle - He needs to get that boot off so he can practice toeing the line for his next OUI test before he toetals his next car and has to call the toetruck.

Jon Jones is Black

Maybe he should get another boot to help him develop those chicken legs.

That Jones didn't go to the hospital immediately after and chose to attend the post-fight press conference.

The ringside physician or whoever said they can't make a fighter do anything. They did their job and treated the wound. Jones chose to stay. Phone Post

Jones has some skinny bones, I think if someone with strong leg kicks can set them up and somehow land a few really nice ones, it might seriously do damage.

How the fuck do you land a leg kick on that fucker though ? Phone Post

I remember reading somewhere that it was a dislocation not a break. (Probably on here).

Any news on what the injury was? Phone Post
