    Default Jon Jones injury update: Doctor says 'Bones' back to UFC fighting in 6-8 weeks

    Jon Jones injury update: Doctor says 'Bones' back to UFC fighting in 6-8 weeks - MMAmania.com

    "Bones" can breathe a sigh of relief -- as can his fans -- now that doctors have estimated he can return to the cage in 6-8 weeks following his toe jam at UFC 159 last weekend in Newark, N.J., which came during his first-round beatdown of Chael Sonnen in the night's main event.
    That's the estimation from Dr. Robert Klapper (via UFC Tonight), Chief Orthopedic Surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, who says "Bones" didn't break his toe, so repairing the dislocation will take approximately six weeks. Following that, the lanky-but-lethal light heavyweight champion can focus on rehab and strength training.

    Klap on:


    "The rehabilitation involves putting the toe back into place. Line it up again. Because there's no fracture of the bone - it's just a dislocation - in six weeks it's healed, then you start range of motion and strengthening rehab. He'll be back to fighting in six to eight weeks."
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    Yeah, I saw this last night. Hopefully Jon won't be grappling/sparring during this time or he'll definitely re-injure himself. Heck, a sprained ankle can take 6-8 months to fully heal let alone a compound dislocation. There is much rehab to be done here, especially for an area that aids in displacing one's weight during active movement.

    It was dislocated and then relocated to a place that wasn't his body.

    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.
    "I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I kick faces."
