Mike Tyson Landed The Jon Jones Dirty Move More Than A Decade Before “Bones” Did It In The UFC

Heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson did one of UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones’ infamous dirty moves more than a decade before the UFC fighter.

During his title fight against Glover Teixeira in 2014, Jones was criticized for one of his tactics. Throughout the fight, Jones would hook Teixeira’s arm at the elbow and try to yank the arm out of its socket.

While many people thought Jones strategy against Teixeira was unethical, Tyson did the same thing during one of his boxing matches.

In the video below, you can see Tyson use the same technique Jones used in his fight. While in a clinch with his opponent, Tyson can be seen pulling his opponent’s arm at the elbow.

Jones is known for using dirty tactics throughout his UFC career. The UFC champion has been criticized in the past for doing oblique kicks and for reaching out towards his opponent with his fingers spread apart.
