UFC 145 Photo: Rashad Evans' Swollen Eye After Jon Jones Battering

Photo by Rashad Evans via Twitter.

UFC Light Heavyweight Rashad Evans became the first man to go five full rounds against champ Jon Jones on Saturday at UFC 145 but it came at a cost: an ugly swollen right eye. Jones repeatedly landed smashing standing left elbows on Evans and the damage is very easy to see a couple of days later.

Evans tweeted the photo to his fans along with a series of comments on the fight. Here's the one that came with the pic:

I went 2 UFC 145 in Atlanta and I had the best seat in the house & all I came back with was this fat eye! Wt http://t.co/YsE6L4Cj
