UFC legend Jon Jones grants a fan’s wish and chokes him out at fitness trade event in Germany
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all-time – that is without question.
At a fitness trade event last weekend in Germany, a longtime supporter of Jones begged for the 31-year-old to choke him out.
And, of course, Bones obliged.
While some fans looked on in amazement, Jones choked out the eager fan in Cologne, Germany and then quickly revived him.
As you can see from the footage below, it was actually expertly and gently done by Jones.
Jones has been on fire recently with convincing wins over Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Smith in his last two outings and he will face Brazilian star Thiago Santos at UFC 239 on July 6.
As he continues to decimate all comers at 205lbs, it seems more and more likely Jones will follow in Daniel Cormier’s footsteps and make the jump to heavyweight.

One rumoured bout ahead of Jones is meeting former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.
Speaking of the potential bout, Jones’ trainer Mike Winkeljohn said: “I would be intrigued by that fight because it’s one of those styles that Stipe is very good at what he does.
“I mean, the man can wrestle, the man can punch, so he can do so many talented things, so you have to watch out. So it’s kind of a challenge for us as coaches and as a team.
“So that would be exciting. I think Jon would be excited about, always about the challenge.
“Jon’s always up for the challenge, he always gets excited about it. He’s always watching fight tape.”
