UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones appears to be heading back to see a specialist about the damaged elbow he sustained at the hands of Vitor Belfort during their UFC 152 clash, after it was revealed there are concerns that the first procedure to correct the damage is incomplete.
A report featured on FUEL TV’s ‘UFC Tonight’ brought word regarding the status of Jones’ injury. Anchor Todd Harris delivered the following during the broadcast.
“According to Jones’ wrestling coach, Izzy Martinez, the injury Jon Jones suffered at UFC 152 was just a strain with no ligament damage.
However … Jones requires a follow up examination in Los Angeles, because, for whatever reason, the camp was told the first procedure may have been incomplete. As of this taping, no word on how that procedure went.”
Jones has been medically suspended indefinitely by the Ontario Athletic Commission pending clearance from a doctor in the coming weeks.
