Jon Bones Jones ‏@JonnyBones
Blessed to be signed by the biggest sports apparel company in the world #Nike Dreams do come true
Never allow anyone to tell you what you can or cannot do

UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones joins UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva as the only mixed martial artists to be sponsored by the sports clothing giant. However, while Silva had the Swoosh plastered across his fight gear at UFC 148, “The Spider’s” deal is focused primarily in Brazil.

Jones, meanwhile, will receive global exposure. He’ll also have his own signature line, similar to NBA greats Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

As with most aspiring athletes who grew up during the Michael Jordan era, Jones always dreamed of being sponsored by Nike.

Jones will flaunt his new threads on September 1st when he defends his throne against Dan Henderson at UFC 151.

Salute to you Jon jones, be yourself and have 0 respect for MMA fans. cause they are faceless nobodies that are nothing to the world and never will be. and they cant fight or get girls or get money also. And Jon i cant stand you, but be yourself and fck them all.I also think its funny not 1 UFC fighter speaks of Fedor once they sign with UFC. Fedor is the reason 95 percent of thes fighters started fighting. Good life Dana, Good fking life you got.Your still a bald loser and noone truely respects you dana. remember that

UFC should /kill too for not giving Vera/Shogun fight of the night. You give it to 2 sissy boys like Lauzon and Varner, that fight was Okay, but you guys make me sick. Once Dana gets fired ill come back to MMA, until them. Keep believing his bullshit you fickle b!tches

This.I wasn't a fan of Bones because I thought he was fake but I am now. He stubbed his toe, got sentenced and all of the dog pilling continues.He's got some growing up to do, but I don't see such vitriol aimed at Sonnen in the same way and dude is a convicted felon. Bones dispatched four ex champions beyond a shadow of a doubt and is already being considered among the sport's GOATS at twenty something years old so what gives?
