Both Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson were transported to the hospital on Saturday night immediately following their brutal five-round main event at UFC 165, a testament to the battle in which the two took part.

Jones took more damage in the fight from the challenger than he's ever taken in his MMA career, but he dished out a massive amount himself, which led Gustafsson to join him. However, one of Jones' potentially numerous injuries might have happened early on in the fight, making what he managed to do the rest of the way all the more impressive.

According to his coach Mike Winkeljohn, in a post on Facebook, Jones hurt his foot badly early in the fight, but continued fighting on.

"Jon Jones showed true grit tonight fighting through a badly injured foot, possibly shattered, early on in the fight," Winkeljohn wrote. "It may have slowed him down but he stayed the course."

Jones took a unanimous decision in a very close fight, and may have another war with Gustafsson to look forward to in his future.

Penick's Analysis: If Jones did what he did Saturday night on a possibly "shattered" foot, then hats off to him because that's gritty as hell. No matter your thoughts on the what happened Saturday night, it cannot be denied that both men are among the toughest fighters in the sport, taking considerable damage from one another in what was simply a closely contested title fight. Emotions have been running high, but both men deserve respect for the battle they put forth for fans in Toronto.
