Sorry, you didn’t want to keep that lunch down, did you? The disgustingly dislocated big toe of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. ‘Bones’ incurred the left-foot injury during his first-round ground ‘n’ pound stoppage of challenger Chael Sonnen at April’s UFC 159 in New Jersey. Suffered during a sprawl, and unnoticed until Jones had his belt back around his waist, it did nothing to hinder Jones’ control of the bout. True to his word, Sonnen took the fight to Jones, his opposing coach on the most recent Ultimate Fighter season, immediately engaging him as he left his corner to start the bout. Ultimately, however, ‘Bones’ would overwhelm Sonnen, taking him down and pounding out a 4:33 win.
