UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones went in for a second examination of his right elbow as he was told recently that the first procedure may have been incomplete.
Today on UFC Tonight, according to Jones' agent, Malki Kawa, Jones has been diagnosed with a strained ligament on his right elbow.
In addition, according to Kawa, Jones will be undergoing physical therapy on the injured arm as he tapes the upcoming season 17 of "The Ultimate Fighter."
Kawa went on to mention that the injury heavily influenced his decision to coach a season for "The Ultimate Fighter," as Jones prefers to remain active.
As previously reported, Jones will coach opposite growing rival Chael Sonnen and the two are scheduled to throw down on April 27.
A venue for the event has yet to be announced.
Jones originally suffered the strained elbow ligament at UFC 152 against Vitor Belfort as he was caught in a tight armbar early in the first round. After several seconds he was able free himself, but the damage had apparently been done.
Despite the injury, however, Jones went on to submit Belfort in the fights' forth round via americana.
