What happened in the alternate reality where Chael survived Round 1

The Watcher sees all worlds. And in one reality, the referee wasn't so quick to jump in to stop the beating Jon Jones was giving to Chael Sonnen. In this world, Sonnen was able to survive the extra 20 seconds until the bell. And that is where it gets interesting ...

When Jones gets back to his corner, it immediately becomes apparent to cornermen that the toe is in danger of being ripped off and that Jones cannot continue the fight. The commotion attracts the attention of the referee, who takes a look at the toe and immediately calls for the contest to be stopped.

Jon Jones loses the fight via TKO (broken toe). Chael Sonnen has claimed the light heavyweight championship of the UFC.

Alhough Jones would normally get an immediate rematch, the toe will require too much time to heal. In the mean time, Joe Silva enacts a devious plan to force a super fight. He offers Anderson Silva an immediate shot vs. Sonnen for the Light Heavyweight belt.

Silva easily beats Sonnen, winning the third fight in the three fight trilogy. Anderson holds two belts simultaneously, cementing him as the greatest pound 4 pound fighter.

By then, Jones has healed his toe, and his first fight back is against Anderson for the undisputed light heavyweight title. Jones wins, and Anderson retires.
