Let's not get ahead of ourselves, this might absolutely be nothing. But, Karyn Bryant tweeted something that is a touch scary directly after UFC 135. Did Jon Jones suffer an injury in his dominant win over Quinton Jackson? The tweet:
Again, we shouldn't take a reporter's report of a limp after a fight as anything more than just that, a report of how it appeared Jones was walking.
But given the difficulties involved with getting Rashad Evans his title shot, it does make me wonder a little bit if maybe Jones suffered an injury that puts him on the shelf for a bit and again postpones an Evans vs. Jones fight for the UFC light heavyweight championship.
Jones put on a brilliant display in leaving Rampage completely unable to establish any offense tonight, it would be a shame if we didn't see a normal turnaround time before the Rashad fight.
Here's hoping this turns out to be nothing.
Update by Brent Brookhouse: No sooner than I post this, the situation gets addressed. Kevin Iole tweeted that Jones was helped in to the post-fight presser by his cornermen but then tweeted:
So, here's hoping that's the end of it. We'll see.
