I think my worst injury was a case of skier's thumb (hyperextension of the thumb) that I got while I was working out (wasn't even martial arts)... that particular thumb would get sore and swollen for about 1 year. Aside from that Ive had some knee and toe injuries and bumps and bruises, cut lips .... So far nothing like Jon Jones' toe after that fight or the injuries that you describe from your past but I also haven't been training as long as you have.
Stryke - given that you have many years of fighting behind you, I want to ask about your preference for hitting with 'pointy things', do you generally favour 1 or 2 techniques (e.g. shoken & shuto) that you use regularly? Everything that I have heard and read recently seems to indicate that it's best to focus on a couple of techniques & perfect them rather than learning many different ones. Basically, to what extent do you practice and believe in this little nugget of wisdom:
Some of the research findings in the field of motor skill behavior can help us explain why students will often fail to utilize their training under the stress of a defensive situation.
