Cutman Jacob "Stitch" Duran spoke yesterday with MMAjunkie radio about Jon Jones' broken toe at UFC 159. Check out the highlights:
On the toe being turned outward after it broke: "A fan said it best: It looked like he was hitchhiking."
On Jones' immediate reaction: "I said, 'Jon, are you in any pain? Are you OK?' He said, 'Yeah, I'm OK.'"
On wrapping up the toe and getting Jones to the hospital: "It's like a triage when you're in the battlefields, you've got to get this warrior prepped up so they can take him to the hospital. I was in the right place at the right time. I was talking to doctors in Las Vegas, and they were saying [the bandage has] a matrix that really coagulates the blood, but in doing that, not only does it coagulate the blood, it draws the impurities out."
