Jon Jones suffers broken toe in win over Chael Sonnen
Jon Jones destroyed Chael Sonnen at UFC 159 on Saturday to retain his UFC light heavyweight title, but he did get injured in the process.
Jones won by first-round TKO — the fight was stopped after Jones pummeled Sonnen with elbows — but the champion broke his big toe.
Below is an image of Jones’ toe, and beware — it is graphic:

Jones was upset that the injury would spoil his vacation plans.
“I was supposed to go to Jamaica, but I don’t know if that’s going to happen now,” Jones said, per FOX Sports’ AJ Perez.
Jones was barely able to stand in his post-fight interview. He’ll probably have some time off to heal now after that injury.
