Jon Jones is one of the best UFC fighters of all time, and his brothers Arthur and Chandler Jones are as amazing. The brothers have a long list of accomplishments, including Super Bowl victories.
The Jones Family’s Rivalry
With an almost-unbreakable record inside the cage, Jon Jones is one of the best fighters the UFC has ever seen. He made his professional fighting debut in April 2008 and has a record of 26-1-0 in mixed martial arts.
The UFC light heavyweight champion won his first MMA fight by knockout in the first round. He made his UFC debut with a default win four months and six fights later. His only loss occurred in his fourth UFC fight, when he was disqualified. He’s been on a winning streak since then, becoming the youngest UFC champion in history.
Both of his brothers — older brother Arthur and younger brother Chandler — have created a name for themselves in athletics, but not in the same sport as Jon. Arthur Arthur Jones, the eldest of the three Jones brothers, was picked in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens as a Defensive End. With the Ravens, he won Super Bowl XLVII, and he also played for the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Football Club. He no longer participates in the sport.
Jon Jones previously stated in an interview that he would wrestle his brother Arthur, who before joining the NFL was one of the greatest heavyweights in the New York state wrestling scene. He is comfortable fighting individuals bigger and stronger than him after losing to his brother numerous times and working with many top heavyweights like Travis Browne and Andre Arlovski for years.
Jon’s first experience with combat was wrestling with his brothers when they were children.
Chandler Jones, the youngest Jones
Chandler Jones is the youngest of three Jones siblings. He, like his older brother, is a member of the National Football League. After three seasons at Syracuse University, the New England Patriots selected him with the No. 21 overall choice in the 2012 NFL Draft.
He was a powerful defensive force for the Patriots in 2015, racking up 12.5 sacks on the way to winning the Super Bowl. With 17 sacks and 20 tackles for loss since then, he has continued to be a force on defense, earning All-Pro honors and his second Pro Bowl appearance in 2017. In 2019, he was named to his second All-Pro team and was nominated for the Pro Bowl after posting 19 sacks and eight forced fumbles.
