Jon Jones’ Grotesquely Broken Toe Doesn’t Stop Him From Destroying Sonnen

It was evident to most that Jon Jones would dominate Chael Sonnen when the two clashed at UFC 159 on April 27. The only question was just how Jones would handle his business.

Surely, nobody expected this.

It was certainly a shock to see Jones employ his wrestling to defeat a two-time collegiate Greco Roman wrestling champion as the light heavyweight champion went right for the takedown as soon as the opening bell sounded. He didn’t utilize his significant reach advantage and striking prowess. Instead, Jones decided to beat Sonnen at his own game as he repeatedly took down the mouthy Sonnen and fed him punches and elbows until the fight was stopped.

But that wasn’t the big surprise.

After Jones was named the victor, Joe Rogan entered the cage to interview the champ. They both looked down and…

Yeah, that’s nasty. Jon Jones severely broke his toe while handing Sonnen a devastating beat down. How he managed to maintain his ruthless attack with a toe that was pointing east while the rest of his toes went west is beyond me. Strangely enough, if Sonnen somehow managed to survive the last 30 seconds, the fight would have likely been stopped and Sonnen would have become champion. Fortunately, Jones is just that good.

He may be out for some time because of the toe but it adds to the growing legend of Jon “Bones” Jones.
