Could you imagine sparring with Jon Jones? First things first, no, it wasn’t Holly Holm that he ko’d before anyone gets the wrong idea. We’ll include the clip of Jon training with Holly at the end of this page, but that’s not the clip of the dude getting KO’d so don’t worry.
Jon Jones is arguably the most skilled fighter alive, there aren’t very many people on this planet in any weight class that stand much of a chance against him in hand to hand combat, and you have to wonder what this sparring partner did to get matched up with Jon, who drops him and makes it look easy. Let this be a warning to you, if you’re late on your gym membership dues or if you look at the owner’s girlfriend the wrong way, you could end up in there sparring with Jon Jones.
Watch Jones drop this guy like he’s not even trying…
Could you imagine showing up to train one day and there’s Jon Jones waiting for you in the cage? This is an older clip from a documentary so Jones didn’t have quite the same aura of destruction around him at that time, but still. This is back when Jones would party and not even take training seriously, it’s unclear if he’ll keep his act together or go back to old habits, and it’s arguable that the carefree reckless attitude also helped him get to where he is, some people don’t do as well under a strict and disciplined kind of setup, hate to say it.
We’re looking forward to seeing him get in there against DC again to see if Jon Jones will be able to reclaim his belt, or if DC will be able to hold onto the gold and shrug off all questions about who is the “real” champ.
Say what you want, but the dude holding the belt is the champion, like it or not.
Here’s Jon Jones sparring with Holly Holm…
These two have been training together at JacksonWink for years and are a part of the family at that gym. Iron sharpens iron, and some of the world’s best fighters all work together in the same gym.
