While MMA fans had their eyes on Fight Night 136 in Moscow, bodybuilding held it’s premier event in Las Vegas, the 54th Mr. Olympia.
Just like MMA, it featured an upset as well as veteran Shawn Rhoden snapped the seven-year winning streak of dominant champ Phil Heath. However, there were some similar faces, two of them being former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and strawweight Felice Herrig.
An event as huge as Mr.Olympia requires a lot sponsors to be smoothly materialized. A high chunk of these sponsors come from protein supplements, which all athletes including MMA fighters use. Hence as ambassadors of these brands, Jones represented GAT supplements and Herrig represented ALLMAX Nutrition.
The event featured a photoshoot and both these fighters decided to get clicked. Herrig is known for her insanely chiseled physique however Jones purposely extended his belly to click a picture with Herrig. (via Instagram):
Jones, who hasn’t competed since a year can afford being slightly out of shape however if the rumors of him headlining UFC 230 are true, his fighting shape won’t be much far away.
