Jon Jones arm wrestles 400 pound power lifter

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

The UFC was originally conceived on one question; which martial arts style is superior. Who would win between karate, wrestling, boxing, Brazilian Jiujitsu, Kung Fu, Savate etc?

These days, mixed martial arts has become a style in and of itself, but the question still gets floated around in the form of who would win in a fight between a professional boxer and a mixed martial artist? And although the answer is easy as it’s dependent on whose rules we play by, it is still persistently asked by fans and media.

Another style match up that occasionally gets brought up is how a mixed martial artist would fare against a power lifter, but instead of fighting in the cage how about matching them up in the arm wrestling arena?

While still serving his suspension for a flagged USADA test, pound for pound great Jon Jones has been keeping himself busy with a variety of activities from power lifting, submission grappling contests or in this case arm wrestling a massive power lifter Robert Oberst.

Will Jones his undefeated record intact, check out below.

Jonathan Dwight “Jon” Jones (born July 19, 1987)  is an American mixed martial artist and a two-time former Light Heavyweight Champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), having won the title in 2011 and an interim title in 2016. He is currently serving a one-year suspension. He is widely regarded as one of the best mixed martial arts fighters of all time and was ranked number one in the world during his championship reign.

Jones won the light heavyweight title in March 2011 at the age of 23, becoming the youngest champion in UFC history. He holds many UFC records in the light heavyweight division, including most wins, most successful and consecutive title defenses, longest win streak, and most submission victories. For a number of years, Jones was ranked as the #1 light heavyweight fighter in the world. [source: Wiki]
