Jones wrestling with big brother

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Jon Jones may be the most dominant lightheavyweight in the history of the UFC and one of the pound for pound greats, but he is also the youngest of three brothers. And his older brothers are just bigger and older, they are professional football players.

In this old clip, Jones and his brothers are enjoying a nice day by the pool when Jones and brother Arthur decide to toss their other brother in the pool. The brother is not match for Jon and Arthur and in the pool he goes.

Then Jon makes a big mistake. He tries to sneak attack his big brother Arthur and push him in the pool. Arthur is of course an NFL linemen and the sneak attack doesn’t work. Now Jon is forced into a wrestling match his big brother. Although he is a former collegiate wrestler and UFC champion, his big brother is of course a formidable opponent and has the mental edge only a big brother can have.
