In a workout video uploaded by him on social media, Jon Jones is seen spending some quality time training his daughter in boxing. The former light heavyweight champion is relatively reclusive about his family life and tried to shed light on aspects of his life that are otherwise unknown to MMA fans.
'Dad, protector, provider, friend, homeschool gym teacher. A man with many titles,' the caption reads.
Jones received a lot of praise for the video from imminent figures in the MMA community, including UFC pioneer and hall of famer Mark Coleman.
One of the all-time greats in MMA, Jon Jones is a former UFC light heavyweight champion who holds the record for most title fight victories in UFC history at 14. In his 12-year tenure with the UFC, the Albuquerque native has achieved everything other than two-division champion status. But Bones' unparalleled achievements are tarred by multiple PED violations and legal troubles. The unwelcome incidents have presented Jones as a negative character to many fight fans.
When will Jon Jones fight next?
After reigning supreme in the UFC's light heavyweight division for almost eight years in two separate title reigns, Jon Jones announced his decision to vacate the championship in August 2020.
Jones later revealed that he will move up in weight to challenge for the heavyweight title. Having competed at light heavyweight through the entirety of his career, Bones has taken time off from competition to prepare his body for heavyweight. As revealed in a social media post, Jones is knocking on 250lb in weight as of January 2021 and seems prepared to handle the big guys.
