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 went to the hospital to be treated and tweeted about the toe:

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.Google+
