UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones made one fan’s wish come true – by choking him out.
The MMA fan begged the 31-year-old to put him in a rear-naked choke when Bones appeared at the FIBO fitness trade show in Cologne, Germany over the weekend.
Jones duly obliged as he put the male individual to sleep, before quickly reviving him by lifting up his legs.
The pair immediately embraced with the supporter delighted at fulfilling a lifelong dream in front of a number of spectators who couldn’t believe what they had just witnesses.
There’s no telling if it will be that easy for Jones to subdue Brazilian star Thiago Santos when the pair meet at UFC 239 on July 6.
Jones is making up for lost time after he was banned for 15 months after he tested positive for Turinabol following his fight against Daniel Cormier on July 29, 2017.
The New York native returned to the Octagon in December where he knocked out Alexander Gustafsson to win the vacant light-heavyweight title.
He then successfully defended his belt against Anthony Smith in March as he claimed a unanimous decision – despite being deducted two points after landing an illegal knee.
Jones recently teased a fight against former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic with the American poised to move up a division.
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.
