The elbow that ended Brandon Vera's bout with Jon Jones at UFC on Versus 1 also did serious damage to Vera's face. Jeremy Botter first reported that Vera's face was broken in three places, and Cagewriter sources confirmed that Vera can't board a plane due to the injuries.

Jones' elbows may be one of the most vicious weapons in MMA. Those elbows are what cut up Matt Hamill's face in their December bout. Though Hamill won that fight because of Jones' illegal elbow, the message sent from both that bout and last night's is clear. If you get hit with a Jon Jones elbow, your fight is not going to last very long.
