The former UFC light heavyweight champion and pound-for-pound great Jon ‘Bones’ Jones is well known to have one of the best wrestling skill-set in the world of MMA. He has even taken down Olympic wrestlers like Daniel Cormier and Dan Henderson. He has often credited the evolution of his wrestling to his coaches at Jackson-Wink MMA. However, in a recent video posted by Jones on his Instagram account, he can be seen practising by wrestling a tiger!
Jones seems to have taken a page out of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s book (the Daegestani is well-known for wrestling bears). He posted the video on his social-media handles and also publicly accepted his admiration of big cats. Here’s what he wrote:
In case you didn’t know, I am a huge fan of big cats. Was excited to check another thing off my bucket list. Thanks for the invite @offleashk9training If you’re ever interested in checking out the cats for yourself please visit http://www.singlevisioninc.org
