Despite the memorable and violent war Jon Jones engaged in with Alexander Gustafsson Saturday night, the light-heavyweight champ has evidently emerged from the bout without any serious injuries.

Following the UFC 165 headliner, Jones was released from a Toronto hospital cleared of any serious injuries, and the champion underwent additional tests to make sure he’s okay today. The renowned fighter tweeted Tuesday:

Just got back from a MRI, Great news! my foot is not broken or fractured.. Focusing on a full recovery

Jones reportedly injured his foot early on in the bout, and although it was suspected the injury could be serious, it looks as though he will not be sidelined for too long.

Now it remains to be seen if Jones will fight Gustafsson in a rematch, following his competitve UD win over the challenger, or Glover Teixeira next.
