anyone got a gif of what made the toe break?

in situations like that (stoppage) i like to see it go a few more seconds, especially if the fight is competitive. but in this case sonnen would have just got brutalized even more so im not gonna complain about it...

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

The gif will be coming soon, they showed the replay of what did it in slow motion zoomed in before the PPV went off the air. A lot of pressure and a big snap.

SO, bare with me here... (and this is completely unbiased... just interesting after an interesting night).

Jones couldn't continue, no?

Well, I hate to bring up the true P4P greatest of all time, but cast your minds back to Rob Emerson v Maynard.
He tapped out yet it was ruled a no contest cause Maynard couldn't continue...

Logic, right there.

Oh, and Rob Emerson is therefore LHw champ, somehow

Damn, that toe is nasty. No wonder he was freaking out after the fight.

Blocking shots but just laying there and not improving position isn't considered intelligently defending yourself. Fighters should learn that by now.
