Jacob “Stitch” Duran was leaving the Octagon when he heard Joe Rogan comment that Jon Jones was injured, halting his plans to make an early exit from the Prudential Center.
“A fan said it best: It looked like he was hitchhiking,” said Duran on MMA Junkie Radio. “I said, ‘Jon, are you in any pain? Are you OK?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I’m OK.’”
Jones’ big toe was broken in the closing moments of his UFC 159 win over Chael Sonnen.
Post-fight, Jones said that his plan to go overseas was likely on hold. He tweeted after the event that everything was back where it belonged.
The champion has tied the division record for most defenses with the latest win. He shares the record with Tito Ortiz.
Jones is out indefinitely due to the injury.
