Jon Jones Out Of Surgery, Recovering Following Operation

ufc 182

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones underwent successful surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee suffered in training recently.

“Bones” was scheduled to face Daniel Cormier next month, but that fight has been pushed back to January and UFC 182.

The surgery was the first significant one for Jones in his MMA career and will mean he only competed once – a decision win over Glover Teixeira – in 2014.

Jones also posted a video of his drive home, along with a “lighter” moment with his management team.
