Brandon Vera suffers three facial fractures complements of Jon Jones

MMAjunkie has learned through Brandon Vera’s manager, Matt Stansell that the elbow strike that Jon Jones landed at the UFC on Versus 1 event, left the UFC light heavyweight with facial fractures.

“The whole right side of Brandon’s face was numb,” Stansell said.

In the night’s main event, Jones postured up and rained down the blow that slammed into the right side of his face near his eye socket, midway through the first round.

The strike caused three fractures in Vera’s right cheekbone, the fighter’s manager, Matt Stansell, today stated.

Vera will see a facial specialist this week, at which time a timetable for his return should be determined, Stansell said.
