Jon Jones Appears On Slew of ESPN Shows

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones made several appearances on ESPN Tuesday, including an interview where his older brother joined him.

Both of Jones’ brothers, Arthur and Chandler, play in the NFL. Arthur is a defensive end for the Baltimore Ravens, while Chandler is a defensive end for the New England Patriots. The two teams actually square off this Sunday night, the same weekend Jones meets Vitor Belfort at UFC 152.

Arthur mentioned that Jon was the ladies man growing up, while “Bones” said he was “always the black sheep of the family,” but has “turned out to be okay.”

Arthur was asked what it’s like to watch Jon fight inside the Octagon:

“It’s a rush. A rush I can’t explain. Being the older brother, it’s hard because I can’t help him out there. But I know he’s well-prepared and trains hard. I can’t wait to see him perform.”

Jon plans on attending Sunday’s game to see both brothers, but declined to say which team he would be pulling for more.
