UFC 159 results: Jon Jones suspended indefinitely after breaking toe

Steve Snowden

Shortly after the conclusion of UFC 159, the New Jersey SAC released the full medical suspensions for all 24 fighters that appeared on the card. Most notably, headliner Jon Jones will be suspended until he's cleared by an orthopaedic doctor after breaking his toe.

As expected, Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones turned in a dominant performance over challenger Chael Sonnen at UFC 159. Sonnen was probably the most aggressive of Jones' contenders to date, but it didn't help him when he ended up beneath Jones in the closing minute of the first round. Jon unleashed devastating ground strikes to finish the fight despite having suffered a gruesome injury to his toe earlier in the bout.
