Because those comments only happen when there is a reason for them to happen. Not a hard concept to understand.

The comment wasn't a joke, guys. Jones was literally going into shock. The way he was holding himself, the way his voice changed, how his answers wandered... these are all indications of shock. I'm honestly surprised that a professional fighter reacted that badly to a broken toe. It was a really overblown reaction.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Yeah, he's a pro fighter. A few cuts and bruises here, doesn't mean he should be used to toes.like that.

Really? Broken toes and fingers were some of the most common injuries suffered in the places that I've trained grappling. Him freaking out the way he did is just ******* odd. It makes me think that he really can't take pain very well.

There is a difference between a regulation broken toe and a compound fractured toe where the bone showing and the toe has just flapped off. Give the dude a break

Pfft what a sook.

Ive btoken multiple toes. my motorcycle fell on my leg in the driveway and snapped my ankle in half I never complained, got someone to drive me to the hospital an hour later I held frozen peas on the break til then. It looked like a baseball on my ankle by the endaand im just a normal dude. Migraines hurt more than a broken limb.

With the adrenaline going u can see he never even noticed it after the fight til the interview

Do you guys not realize that there is a difference between a broken bone and a bone that is sticking out through your skin??? It is not EVEN CLOSE to the same level of panic. (I am talking about the mental aspect for any genius trying to point out that it is the same thing)

Iv broken my collar bone, hand 3 times, ankle once, and all of that did not compare to when i dislocated my knee cap and i could see it to the side of my knee. Then my knee swelled up so bad that it looked like it was connected to a 300 pound man. And when it swelled up is actually when i stopped freaking out every time i looked down. It was the view of seeing my knee to the side that had me in a panic and not the pain. I dont even want to imagine what i would act like if i could see my bone sticking out. Especially if i was an athlete since the first thing i would think is if my career is over. As silly as that may sound it really is not silly for the person its happening to.

Hell i once had an eye infection and i didnt care until the doctor told me that there is a 50% chance for me to go blind. And the only way to save my vision is to take antibiotic eye drops every single hour and wake up every 2 to 3 hours to put them in for 9 hours max and then back to taking them every hour. Once he told me there is a 50% chance of going blind i went to the bathroom and i could barely breath.

He really didn't seem to panic that much to me. Seemed to stay calm and only winced when Stitch was touching his foot. He gets props from me for doing the interview with a bone sticking out of his toe. Thats pretty cool.

I've seen people with similar injuries. I've been the guy with the shoulder six inches lower than it should be or a knee cap facing the wrong direction. They hurt but they're not bad enough to go into shock.

This isn't a comment trying to espouse my badassness. This is just me commenting on an injury I've seen before in real life and the people - even regular non-fighter people - didn't react that way unless they just didn't take pain well. To me his reaction was overblown.
