    Watching Jones's toe pop damn near off is one of the most nausiating things I've seen on a while. It's almost as bad as watching the Octomoms porno, and yet I keep watching both. I need help.

    Doctor who treated Jon Jones at UFC 159 blasts 'irresponsible' critics for 'Internet nonsense' - MMAmania.com

    Dr. Michael Kelly, the first physician inside the Octagon after Jones was injured, is the man responsible for cleaning and dressing the toe. And he's not too pleased with the comments from the peanut gallery, as he explains to Josh Rosenblatt at Fightland:


    I've read some of the criticisms that have been making their way around the Internet about what we should have done as doctors. I know there's a doctor who writes a lot about MMA but doesn't really cover any shows who always has a lot to say, and he derives most of his opinions from pictures on the Internet, which I think is somewhat irresponsible.

    The treatment for a compound fracture is to clean up the wound, have it set, and then use antibiotics to make sure there's no infection. I saw that somebody had said it was sutured and he was allowed to just walk on it. It wasn't the case. It wasn't sutured in the arena. Jones wasn't walking on an open wound. That sounds like a silly quote from someone who doesn't work many fights. Many fighters get cuts and wounds during their bouts and they're cleaned up and covered or sutured and allowed to go about their day. The wound was cleaned, it was dressed; there were no sutures placed at the event. The injury was splinted and closed and covered with a dressing, and arrangements were made to have him taken to the emergency room.

    As for the criticism that Jones shouldn't have been allowed to go to the post-fight press conference before going to the hospital, everybody that practices medicine knows that a patient has a right to autonomy and to make their own decisions. You can't force them to do anything. If he wanted to talk at the press conference, he had every right to, as does any other patient. You can't force them to go to the emergency room that second. If they're awake, alert, and oriented, and they can make a reasonable decision, they can decide when to go. It wasn't a life-threatening issue, contrary to the nonsense I've seen on the Internet. It's very funny when you're there looking at something and then you see what propagates and how things get twisted and distorted. But it happens from time to time. Everybody plays Monday morning quarterback.

    Give Jones to many times speaking and it will be in his mouth.

    This is great news. Some days I am a Bones fan, others I am not. I can't seem to make up my mind. But I do think he's the best fighter in the world.

    I can't wait to see who challenges him next.
