Jon Jones defeated Chael Sonnen - as pretty much everyone expected - in the first round of the main event at UFC 159, retaining his Light Heavyweight Championship. After the official announcement from Bruce Buffer, Jones realized his toe was broken as Joe Rogan tried to grab the usual post-fight interview. By broken, I mean disturbingly disfigured and bloody.

Jon Jones ended the night in a stool, the victim of one of the several odd injuries at UFC 159.

There has been so talk about this fight and a lot of trash talk. Mostly coming from the Sonnen camp, Chael is a throwback to P.T. Barnum, he is a barker who promotes himself very well. The big question on everyone’s mind is: Can Chael back up his boastful statements and actually beat the Light Heavyweight Champion in the form of Jon “Bones” Jones?... Read more
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) had their 4th pay-per-view event on Saturday.
The much anticipated bout pegged light heavyweight champion Jon Jones against former middleweight contender Chael Sonnen. The event took place at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, and captured the attention of UFC fans everywhere, despite Jones being a heavy favorite.
Tensions bled way into...
Jon Jones had to climb the UFC ranks just like any other young up and comer. We tend to forget that he had seven dominant showings before being rewarded with his title shot against Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua. It was a different kind of climb though. Before the Tonight Show appearance, the Rashad Evans soap opera, and the eventual culmination into a Nike sponsorship - this was...
Chael Sonnen proved timing is everything in the UFC on Saturday night.
In fact, a mere 27 seconds was the difference between a "shock the world" moment and what is now a likely retirement for the bombastic fan favorite.
On a weird night that saw unintentional eye pokes put a premature end to two fights in the undercard of UFC 159, undisputed light heavyweight champion...
Sure, things did get a little messy this past weekend in Jersey. Eye pokes, broken thumbs and toes, technical decisions - basically it was just one of those nights in MMA that no one could possibly prepare for. However, three fighters did stand out about the rest in terms of performance, and ultraviolence. Let's start from the top. 1st Star - Pat 'Bam Bam' Healy ...
