Bones Jones Is A Hero Again

thelegend2011-04-19 02:24:41 +0000 #1

Jon “Bones” Jones may soon need to change his nickname to Superman or Batman.

The current UFC light heavyweight champion has somehow gotten into the hero business over the last couple of months, and business is good.

Jones hit the spotlight on the same day he fought Maurcio “Shogun” Rua for the UFC light heavyweight title when he subdued a thief after he broke into someone’s car and stole their belongings.

Jones, along with his coaches Mike Winkeljohn and Greg Jackson, stopped the thief and held him there until police could arrive to make the official arrest.

Jones’ heroics don’t always involve stopping thieves.

While on a business trip to Florida this week, Jones observed a young woman along with her child involved in a somewhat loud conversation over a cell phone while he was checking into his hotel.

According to sources, Jones overheard the young woman crying because she had apparently flown to Florida to be with her boyfriend, and after an argument ensued, he left her and her child to fend for themselves with no place to stay and an airline ticket for a flight that didn’t depart for two days.

Jones took it upon himself to offer to put the young lady and her child up in the hotel for the time she needed until her flight could take her back home.

It wasn’t until much later that the young woman was told that she wasn’t just helped out by a young man trying to do a good deed, he just happened to be one of the best fighters in the world.

Jones graciously paid for the room and went about his business, after making sure the woman and her child were safe and taken care of until they could make it back home.

Personally I think he was just trying to get his hole

That is some stand up stuff right there. Mad respect for the guy, most people would just carry on with their business, how many here would truly take the time to find out what happened to someone in this type of emotional distress?

Way to go Bones', and a very nice way to put a positive spotlight on MMA and its fighters.

Personally, i think we are seeing one of the kindest people on the face of the earth...

this dude really is something special.. now whether he holds the title for a long time or whatever the case may be, Jones is going to do wonders for the sport.

haters keep hating, the world wouldn't be what it is today if it weren't for you...

I wonder if Mr. Jones has any idea of just exactly how expensive my student loan payments are. Recently, man it's hard to type this, *regains control* I've been reduced to buying cans of Polish beer instead of Belgian ales. I KNOW I KNOW - I expect more of me too - but those LITTLE BASTARDS keep skipping their ukulele lessons and when then do I don't get paid but unless Sallie Mae forgets my name I am going to go a-viking upon the the next potential ukulele master that gips me. I will however, not give up my "hole". He might could borrow my wife but she tested positive for syphillis so...
