Jon-Jones-UFC-Expo-2013UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been sidelined ever since his UFC 159 victory over Chael Sonnen.

That is, he had been sidelined until Tuesday.

The champ injured his toe in the first-round drubbing of Sonnen on April 27 in New Jersey.

Limping over to do his post-fight interview with UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan, Jones’ toe was jutting out at an unnatural angle, bleeding, the bone trying to sneak a peak through his skin. It caused more than a few stomachs to churn when the cameras focused on his injured foot.

The injury, which most believed was a fracture, was actually a severe dislocation. That ended up being a more questionable proposition for healing than the fracture would have been, but Jones recuperated rather quickly, and has already returned to training.

“Day 1 baby!!! Kickboxing with Wink went great, grappling with coach Jackson later,” Jones tweeted on Tuesday, marking his first day back in action.

Jones added that his toe was feeling “totally fine,” and that he is “really excited to be fighting an Orthodox fighter,” although he has yet to show much of a weakness in fighting southpaws.

He already has his next bout scheduled, getting the fight that both he and his next opponent wanted.

Jones will square off with Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 on Sept. 21 in Toronto.
