He didn't throw any kicks...
If you had ever grappled (or done anything else) in your life you would understand.

Also if any lhw contenders aren't stupid chael just showed them all how to close the distance and make the reach be like nothing, chael did more than anyone else did against jones in one round even if that doesn't say a lot

That's two freakish injuries now. Who's next...

I actually missed the Jones interview and what the injury looked like.

And Amdm, of course not this fight only, but it was more apparent in this fight. He rag dolled a world class wrestler. Makes it extremely apparent.

Funny how a lot of people are complaining about the stoppage even though Sonnen himself didn't seem to mind it.

Jones destroys a fighter that had no business being in the ring with him in the first place.

How shocking, well not really.

should have kept the fight going or at least been ruled an NC because of the foot.

Jones did that intentionally. He chose to stay in close with Chael, he wanted to (as he said) out-chael chael. Which he did.

So in other words, any possible option that might have favored the fighter you like more?

He probably caught it on something, that's usually how those happen. He said he thought there was a hole somewhere in the canvas which makes perfect sense.

I've seen awful breaks from digits catching during grappling sessions, like between mats for instance.
