Jon Jones became the youngest world champion in UFC history on Saturday, and he did so with a damaged hand.

The new light-heavyweight champion produced one of the all-time great Octagon performances to destroy Mauricio Shogun Rua via TKO in the third round. He will now face Rashad Evans.

However, Jones is now suspended indefinitely due to a damaged right hand, and he will undergo a scan to check for any fractures or ligament damage.

Shogun is also suspended for at least two months, pending a CT scan after he came under a heavy barrage of strikes to the head at UFC 128.

UFC 128 suspensions:

Jon Jones: Suspended indefinitely pending X-ray, MRI and orthopedic clearance of right hand

Mauricio "Shogun" Rua: Suspended indefinitely pending CT head scan, minimum 60-day suspension for TKO loss

Brendan Schaub: Suspended indefinitely pending CT scan of facial/orbital bones, minimum 60-day suspension for facial laceration

Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic: Suspended indefinitely pending CT head scan, minimum 30-day suspension for knockout loss and facial lacerations

Raphael Assuncao: Suspended 30 days for knockout loss

Kamal Shalorus: Suspended indefinitely pending CT scan of facial/orbital bones

Luiz Cane: Suspended indefinitely pending X-ray and orthopedic clearance of left thumb

Eliot Marshall: Suspended indefinitely pending CT head scan, minimum 30-day suspension for TKO loss

the usual injuries.

His hand will most likely be ok. Usually when its broken, there are already pics on the net posted by the fighters and Jones damn sure loves to twitter.
