After UFC 159 we now know there are two available methods to defeat Jon Jones: Get caught with 12-6 illegal elbows, and fight Jones in hopes that a satanic ritual is underway in your fight that leaves sporadic vortexes in the canvas and pray that Jones’ toe falls inside one of them. As we’ve seen in the past, it’s pretty much futile to fight him. Sort of like when you crank up a videogame and get to a point in the story in which you face a boss that you’re supposed to be defeated by — but you don’t know it yet. You’re hacking away, using all of your well-honed talent, wasting your potions without the knowledge that it’s simply impossible to gain a victory. That’s a congruent example of fighting the UFC light heavyweight champion. Fighters in the 205 lb division, you better touch up on your satanic ritual game if you want to even have a shot.
Jon Jones’ toe was dislocated, not broken — although it was one of the nastiest dislocations we’ve ever seen. Massive props to the UFC camera man for aiming his lens long enough to gross out half off the country. If you’re still broken up about Jones’ toe, check out this Fuel TV clip of Dr. Robert Klapper explaining exactly how and why this freak accident happened.
