Jon Jones defended his light heavyweight strap from Chael Sonnen as expected, but that was about the only normal thing that could be taken away from a wacky UFC 159 fight card.
Sonnen was actually seconds away from potentially dethroning Jones via toe injury. Moments after the champion stopped his challenger with ground-and-pound in the final minute of the opening round, it was discovered that Jones had somehow suffered a nasty compound fracture.
One bout on the preliminary card did end in a technical knockout due to injury, and two other fights went to technical decisions after unfortunate eye pokes.
While UFC 159 was a disappointing event in many ways, there were some bright spots. Here are the best and worst from the entire fight card.
