"Who could've known @JonnyBones is the greatest MMA fighter AND rapper alive! Bones got bars!!! 😂😂😂#GOATFreestyle"

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, for his part, put forth an impressive attempt at freestyle rapping. With MC Dome beatboxing in the background, Jones rapped:
"Watch this. You think you're hot but you not. I'm from Union, Endicott. I'll stomp down on your face and create blood clots. Jon Jones run this town. I don't f**k around. In the courts, I do my things through sports. But I know b*ms on the street that'll run up in this beast. I cock it back, bang bang. Brains be staining up my streets."
Following Jon Jones' rap, MC Dome chimed in with his lyrics and rapped:
"Keep it sane in the streets. It's my Dome baby boy. I'm just aiming high. And nobody gonna stop 'cause you know we gon' buy ESPN. MC Dome, now we gon' fly, yeah."

Henry Cejudo believes Jon Jones keeps getting better despite being the best MMA fighter
In the aforementioned video posted to his YouTube channel, Henry Cejudo notably suggested that Jon 'Bones' Jones is likely the MMA G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time).
Jones hasn't competed since February 2020, and is scheduled to make his heavyweight debut after a lengthy layoff. He'll fight former interim UFC heavyweight champion Ciryl Gane for the vacant UFC heavyweight title at UFC 285 on March 4th.
While the odds are stacked against Jones, 'Triple C' believes he's destined to win UFC heavyweight gold. He lauded 'Bones' for swiftly learning to execute new techniques flawlessly. Emphasizing that Jones keeps improving despite already being the best for so long, Cejudo said:
"[Jones] has the god-given ability. And when you teach a guy who has ability, technique like himself and is willing to learn. I mean that's what equals a straight GOAT status... As good as Jon Jones is, he's still getting better, and that's just scary."
