08:00 AM ET 05.24 | UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones suffered a gruesome toe injury during his title defense against Chael Sonnen at UFC 159 in April and his recovery time is still not set in stone. If the damage isn't revealed to be too severe, it could be a few months until Jones returns to the octagon. Unfortunately, there is also a chance that the champ could be on the sidelines for up to half a year. UFC president Dana White shed some light on Jones' status when speaking with the media today. White went on to say that Jones is getting ready to undergo another MRI when he gets back to the states to check to full extent of the damage.
