UFC Jon Jones Bones

If you’re not a fan of Jon Jones after witnessing his destruction of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 128, then please allow the freshly-minted light heavyweight king to detail his heroic pre-fight activities just hours before the biggest scrap of his life.

As customary prior to every contest, Jones seeks a tranquil space to get his meditation on. Unfortunately for the skyrocketing superstar, the waterfall park they selected on Saturday was in a “ghetto” area of New Jersey where muggings take place on the regular.

Guess what happened just seconds after they pulled up to the park?

Although Jones tweeted about the unbelievable incident yesterday, he gave a complete blow-by-blow breakdown during the UFC 128 post-fight press conference. It was the first question the 23-year-old was asked when he hit the podium, despite becoming the youngest champion in UFC history just minutes beforehand.
