Jon Jones Discusses His Contract With Nike

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones took a monumental step towards becoming a global icon when he signed with Nike last week.

While appearing on the UFC 150 post-fight show over the weekend on Fuel TV, Jones discussed his deal with the shoe/clothing empire.

It’s a huge opportunity for me. It’s great for the UFC. I’m honored to be the guy to get them in the house. They’re making cool clothing and it’s great for the sport. If I was a young fighter, I’d look forward to getting Nike stuff in the future.

Jones will seek his fourth successful title defense in September when he takes on Dan Henderson in the the main event of UFC 151.
