At the post-fight press conference for the event Jones had both of his feet heavily iced and it’s believed that could why he’s been handed a six month medical suspension, though he can be cleared in 45 days by a doctor.
The injury is likely to ensure that a title fight between Jones and current No.1 contender Rashad Evans won’t take place until early 2012 at the earliest.
Also out for 180 days is another winner on the night, James Te Huna and Aaron Riley who broke his jaw during the prelims.
