As hard as it is to believe, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones did not fracture his left big toe this past weekend.
Dr. Robert Klapper informed “UFC Tonight” that Jones only dislocated the toe, and could return to action in a number of months.
“The rehabilitation involves putting the toe back into place,” Klapper said. “Because there’s no fracture of the bone, it’s just a dislocation, in six weeks it’s healed, then you start range of motion and strengthening rehab.”
Jones defeated Chael Sonnen via first round TKO and has mentioned facing Alexander Gustafsson in his next title defense. Jones’ manager did say his fighter would know more news after seeing a specialist in the coming days.
Pretty hard to fathom that the bone of “Bones” didn’t snap as hard as it was twisted inside the Octagon.
