Maybe having just defended your championship belt and being full of adrenaline in a stadium full of people under bright lights surrounded by cameras with Joe Rogan blasting you with questions - is a somewhat different context to you seeing some regular dude having an accident in the street.

Neither of those are as bad as a bone sticking out of your skin.

Its not the pain that makes someone go in to shock.

I thought it was pretty funny. I kinda like the way Bones handles this entire fight including chael's BS. I am starting to like Jones were as before I was indifferent.

Appeared to be the kind of response when someone gets put on the spot and needs to come up with something to say in a hurry.

Jones did'nt seem pissed and I'll bet he's still going to go to Jamaica.

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.
Pretty much this. It's not about pain (remember, he didn't tap to Belfort's armbar which was deep and had him rehab for quite some time), it's about "realising" that something is completely wrong with your body. That wasn't a simple broken toe, which indeed is not so unusual in martial arts training when it gets stuck between mats, but Jones' toe was literally almost completely ripped off the foot. It's the "creepy" sight, not the actual damage. It's like i.e. with spiders, most kinds of them are absolutely hamless and pose no threat at all to humans, yet most people get a creepy feeling when in close contact (or even in sight) with them.

Well you would be pissed if you weren't able to go on holiday although the LHW division is so thin he probably could fit some time in later on in the year while the UFC tries to find a "genuine" contender.

Velasquez will be back
