Jon Jones on "The Tonight Show" with Jay LenoPosted on March 25, 2011, 02:00 PM by Joey Santosus
Newly crowned Light Heavyweight Champion Jon "Bones" Jones appeared on Thursday's edition of NBC's "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. The invitation to appear came after Jones, alongside his Jackson's MMA coaches, subdued a thief in New Jersey, just hours ahead of his UFC 128 title fight. "Bones" went on to defeat Mauricio "Shogun" Rua via third round TKO to become the youngest Champion in UFC history.
While the majority of his time on the show was spent recounting his crime fighting efforts, Jones also explained the concept of mixed martial arts, detailing his progression from a wrestler to a professional fighter. Leno took a moment to show a clip of Saturday's title fight as well, which appeared to be well-received from members of the audience.
