The coach of UFC 172 LHW title challenger Glover Teixeira says that his fighter was badly hurt by a Jon Jones shoulder crank in the first round and will be getting an MRI on Wednesday.

Our own T.P. Grant has already explained in detail the nasty standing shoulder lock that Jon Jones applied to Glover Teixeira's right arm in the first round of their UFC 172 bout. Now Glover's coach John Hackleman is talking about the shoulder and the damage done.

Via MMA.tv, Hackleman explains, "I've never seen Glover lose a fight like this. I've never seen Glover bleeding. I've never seen Glover hurt so bad. Glover hurt his right shoulder really bad in the first round. The first round! That's not an excuse, because Jon Jones hurt his shoulder.

"So, just like when Tyron Woodley hurt Condit's knee, and then they said, well, he fought him with a hurt knee - yah, but Woodley hurt his knee. Jon Jones hurt Glover's shoulder in the tie up on the clinch against the cage, tweaked his shoulder and he hurt it. So Glover couldn't use his right hand very well... You see me in the corner trying to get him to throw that right hand harder. He told me in one round, 'Hey, can you get some ice on it?'"

"Sometimes he has shoulder problems, from training too much. He never said he has an actual torn ligament, or torn tendon. So we found that out afterwards. It was obvious, it was actually disfigured and swollen. You could tell there was something seriously wrong with it. He's going to have an MRI Wednesday."

"The fact that he fought with it... besides the massive, gaping cut above his eye. Right above his eye. And the thinks that he has a broken rib too. But it wasn't. Again Jon Jones caused all these injuries."
