Two fights ended by technical decision from eye pokes, one fight ended because of a thumb injury, and another fight ended with the winner breaking his toe.
This rash of injuries started on the undercard when Ovince St. Preux poked Gian Villante in the eye in the third round. That resulted in a technical-decision win for St. Preux, but the bout ended earlier than it should have in a controversial decision by the referee.
In the next bout, Yancy Medeiros broke his thumb, which led to a loss for the Hawaiian. The injury halted what could have been a great fight with Rustam Khabilov.
The injuries continued on the main card with Michael Bisping's inadvertent eye poke of Alan Belcher. The fight was almost over, but it has caused significant concern for Belcher's future in the sport, as his career almost ended from an eye injury not long ago.
Even the main event did not go unscathed. Jon Jones defeated Chael Sonnen but suffered a gruesome toe injury that might have decided the fight if it had gone beyond the first round.
