My Meeting With UFC Light Heavyweight Champ Bones Jones
On Saturday morning, I was fortunate to spend two hours at Sisbarro Sunland Park Used Cars with UFC Light Heavyweight Champ Jon "Bones" Jones. The youngest title holder in UFC history was in town to meet fans prior to his September 1st bout against Dan "Hendo" Hederson. The Rochester, New York native spends much of his time training in Albuquerque, and enjoyed meeting many of his fans from El Paso and Ft. Bliss.
He posed for pictures and signed autographs for three hours at Sisbarro Sunland Park. Bones could not have been a nicer guy to his adoring fanbase. Before I left, I asked Bones for a "staredown" picture of us. I've always wanted to find out how these guys can look as nasty as they do without smiling during the posedown.
As soon as we finished, Jones smiled and told me that I have beautiful eyes. "That's what my wife has said," I answered.
