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.
"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."
