Did you know that Patriots’ defensive end Chandler Jones and UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones are brothers? I didn’t. They also have an older brother who plays for the Indianapolis Colts, defensive lineman Arthur Jones. Who knew? How is this not bigger news? They come from great stock. Good God. Harvest Mr. Jones’ sperm. Stud him out. He makes winners.
The youngest of the Jones family genetic lottery winners, Chandler, wants to step into the ring with his middle brother for one round — the winner gets to donate the event’s earnings to the charity of his choosing. His middle brother is, of course, Jon “Bones” Jones, who is widely considered the greatest pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.
NFL star Chandler Jones — who tells TMZ Sports he’s ready and willing to step in the octagon with JJ ’cause he’s 100% confident he could beat his ass.
“Me and my brother used to fight all the time when we were young … and I’m pretty sure I can take him down now. I am way bigger than he is,” Chandler tells us.
Chandler, 24 years old, is listed at 6’5″, 265 pounds with a reach of 85 3/4 inches. Bones, 27 years old, is listed at 6’4″, 205 pounds with a reach of 84 1/2 inches. Chandler clearly is a lot bigger, but big brother Bones can do this:
Give me Bones. Too good. Too technically sound. Killer instinct. The fight will likely never come to fruition, but how impressive is the Jones family? My family throws the football around in the backyard and it looks like a group of elementary school rejects who didn’t get picked for the touch football game..
