"To this day, I've never lost a fight to him."
Considering that the "him" is Jon "Bones" Jones, the magnificent UFC light heavyweight champion, that's a heady statement. Who'd say such a thing?
It's certainly not a claim that could be made by any of the 13-1 dynamo's past opponents, not even the fighter responsible for the "1." True, Matt Hamill's résumé lists a victory over Jones, but only because along the way to being beaten to a pulp, "The Hammer" was nailed by some elbows thrown in a way that got Jones disqualified. Everyone knows who really won that fight.
The one guy who's rolled with Jon Jones and not walked away a discombobulated loser is a 6-foot-3, 300-pound former state high school wrestling champion who now plays in the NFL. His name is Arthur Jones. He's Jon's big brother, a year older than the 23-year-old thrill a minute.
"Ever since we were little kids, we were always wrestling with each other and tearing up the house," said Arthur, a Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle, speaking during a break in a New York City photo shoot featuring him, Jon and their younger brother, Chandler, a defensive tackle at Syracuse University. "We still wrestle for fun whenever we're together. Just last night we were rolling around at our hotel. I think we're going to be 45, 50, 60 years old and still wrestling with each other."
