UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones and former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir have been on a global tour to promote their upcoming UFC bouts at UFC 171 and UFC 169, respectively. At one point this summer the pair ended up in the back room of Moscow, Russia's Maxim bar.
For reasons so far unknown the two got into what appears to be a friendly but lively tussle, that ended up with the far larger Mir uncermoniously putting Jones on his back.
This was doubtless not a genuine grudge match. The pair train together at Jackson's MMA, and Mir served as Jones' head BJJ coach on TUF 17.
Further, Jones' manager stated explicity that it was just two teammates horsing around.
