By Chris Howie

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones successfully defended his title against Vitor Belfort last night in Toronto but it didn't all go as smooth as he had hoped.

Belfort caught Jones in an arm bar in the first round of the fight that looked tight and both fighters said the the arm was about to pop when speaking about it during the post fight press conference.

As for whether Jones will see any time on the shelf due to injury is hard to say at this point “We haven't been able to get my arm x-rayed yet,” Jones said “but they're saying there might be some nerve damage in the bicep.”
