Jon Jones Is So Bored He’ll Snapchat Fan’s Grandma

Jon Jones is choosing a strange – and creepy – way to occupy his time.

Jon Jones is finding new and ‘creative’ ways to bide his time.

The suspended former UFC light heavyweight champion is awaiting his official suspension from USADA after testing positive for anabolic steroid Turinabol in conjunction with his knockout win over Daniel Cormier in the main event of last summer’s UFC 214, a failure which ‘Bones’ swears he is innocent for (again).

While he does so, he’s staying active on social media to keep his name in the news, and he did just that with an unofficial fan Q&A last night. Not surprisingly, things got a little weird courtesy of a U.K.-based fan who told ‘Bones’ he had just told his grandma about him and she now wanted to FaceTime with the former champ:

Jones responded quickly, somewhat creepily asking if the fan’s grandmother was single:

The fan was apparently ecstatic to hear Jones’ interest in his grandma, offering his ‘permission’ for the disgraced would-be legend to pursue her:

Jones then confirmed he would speak to the granny on Snapchat by telling his all-too-eager fan to send him her account details:

As expected, the back-and-forth prompted a lovely exchange of mostly hateful dialect directed at both Jones and the fan, which of course the fan responded to nearly every one.

Welcome to the Internet, folks. It’s a strange place.

As for Jones, we still don’t know when we’ll see him back in the cage, but he could be facing a rather lengthy suspension for his third failed drug test in as many years.

Jon Jones Trashes ‘Old Man’ Chuck Liddell Online – Again

Jon Jones isn’t done with Chuck Liddell just yet…

The post Jon Jones Trashes ‘Old Man’ Chuck Liddell Online – Again appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Earlier this week, former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell announced on The MMA Hour that he would be making a return to fighting at 48 years old.

And not only that, but “The Iceman” said that he’s interested in taking a few warm-up fights before challenging troubled pound-for-pound great Jon Jones.

Ultimately, that potential fight is incredibly unlikely to take place for a variety of reasons, but Liddell’s comments were enough to stir up a bit of a rivalry on social media between him and “Bones”.

The two have gone back and forth all week, but the latest shot came from Jones, who took to Twitter to not only take another jab at Liddell but to also criticize the former champion’s recent record as well.

Liddell did indeed lose five of his last six bouts with four of those losses coming via stoppage. He then retired in 2010, now having not competed in nearly eight years.

Jones, meanwhile, last competed at UFC 214 last July when he scored a third-round knockout victory over longtime rival Daniel Cormier to reclaim the UFC’s 205-pound title.

The result was later changed to a no contest, however, when it was revealed that Jones had failed yet another drug test. He currently awaits a potentially lengthy suspension as a result, and his fighting future is still very unclear.

But that doesn’t mean he won’t do some (extended) verbal sparring with Liddell outside of the cage.

MMA’s Top 10 Strangest Pre-Fight Rituals

These MMA stars have the strangest pre-fight rituals in the fight game:

The post MMA’s Top 10 Strangest Pre-Fight Rituals appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

When it comes to mentally preparing themselves to be locked inside the Octagon with another highly trained fighter, UFC stars have tried all kinds of weird and wonderful methods to get in the right frame of mind for the battle ahead.

In this article, we’ll look at 10 of the strangest pre-fight rituals adopted by MMA stars over the years; from those born out of superstition and habitual behavior, through to those undertaken just for the sheer hell of it!

Matt Lindland

Matt Lindland went to extreme lengths to try and gain an advantage over his opponents during both his wrestling and mixed martial arts career’s.

‘The Law’ would avoid showering in the week leading up to his fights in an attempt to repulse his opponents and make their lives misery whenever they got near to him in the cage.

Given that Lindland was an expert grappler who once won an Olympic wrestling silver medalist, that meant that a lot of fighters ended up being forced to get up close and personal with him over the years, whether they wanted to be or not.

Most competitors just grinned and bore it, silently suffering through the stench, but after earning a split decision victory over Lindland at WFA: King Of The Streets in 2006, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson couldn’t resist calling out the wrestler over his hygiene, or lack thereof.

”Man, that was like fighting a big-ass smelly skunk,” Rampage declared in his post-fight interview. “Matt you need to take a shower man.”

‘True Legend’ Chuck Liddell Fires Back At Jon Jones

Liddell has given his response to the latest comments made by Jones.

The post ‘True Legend’ Chuck Liddell Fires Back At Jon Jones appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

The war of words between Chuck Liddell and Jon Jones continues.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer is working towards making a comeback to the sport of MMA that he once ruled with an iron fist.

Liddell has not fought since June of 2010 and is now 47 years old. He decided to retire after losing five of his last six bouts, four of them by vicious knockout.

It all started a few weeks ago once Oscar De La Hoya teased starting a new MMA promotion alongside Liddell.

There is a lot of speculation on the possible relationship between the Golden Boy promoter and former UFC light heavyweight champion.

That remains to be seen but what we do know is the fact that Liddell is focused on returning to the cage as an active pro-MMA fighter.

Earlier this week, Liddell spoke with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour about his desire to come out of retirement and hopes to fight his arch-rival Tito Ortiz.

Whether this fight happens in La Hoya’s new promotion or Bellator MMA remains to be seen.

The former UFC champ also discussed how he would like to fight some other fighters as well including former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

This leads us to this moment. Jones heard the comments made by Liddell and he took to his official Twitter account to respond to the UFC Legend. Jones poked fun at him for his age as well as other things.

Keep in mind that this idea of Liddell fighting Jones is not realistic as UFC President Dana White has already gone on record by stating in previous interviews that he doesn’t think Liddell should be fighting at this stage in the game of his life and would not book him in another fight inside of the Octagon under the UFC banner.

“I figure it’s a good place for a youngin like u to learn from a true legend and champion on how to really fight and conduct your life inside and outside the ring champions101 #respect #integrity.”
