Jon Jones and Mike Tyson spotted each other on the streets, leading to an unprompted play fight between the two. But, things took a turn when Tyson hit Jones just a little too hard.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones quickly rose to super stardom in his mixed martial arts career. The former title holder has only lost once as a professional MMA fighter, which was a disqualification due to an illegal elbow dealt to Matt Hamill back in 2009. While “Bones” Jones may be a superstar within the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and to mixed martial arts fans worldwide, the former champion bumped into a popular culture icon on the street as of late.
As seen in the video provided, Jon Jones and boxing legend Mike Tyson can be seen having a go at each other. After spotting one another on the street, the two men began jokingly prodding each other with jabs and half-speed blows. Then, Tyson struck Jones with a punch that made an impact.
