Jon Jones Daniel Cormier Bang Tao MMA

Jon Jones has shared a two-fight rivalry with fellow former two-division titleholder, Daniel Cormier – in one of the most notorious series in fighting history. Appearing in Phuket, Thailand this week, the Rochester native shared an insight into a sneaky and shrewd technique he utilized in his fight with the Hall of Famer – in the form of a vicious knee to the body.

Jones, a former two-time light heavyweight champion and current heavyweight gold holder, has been sidelined from the Octagon since he landed the vacant heavyweight title with a stunning first-round guillotine choke submission win over Ciryl Gane back in March of last year.

Forced from a title fight with former champion, Stipe Miocic in a slated return in November, Jones suffered a pectoral tendon tear in the weeks ahead of their UFC 295 forcing the cancellation of the showdown in Madison Square Garden.

And traveling to Thailand during his time away from active competition, Jones, who appeared at Bang Tao Muay Thai & MMA – the leading combat sports facility in Phuket, held a seminar for fellow fighters and fans in attendance.
