Jon “Bones” Jones may soon need to change his nickname to Superman or Batman.

The current UFC light heavyweight champion has somehow gotten into the hero business over the last couple of months, and business is good.

Jones hit the spotlight on the same day he fought Maurcio “Shogun” Rua for the UFC light heavyweight title when he subdued a thief after he broke into someone’s car and stole their belongings.

Jones, along with his coaches Mike Winkeljohn and Greg Jackson, stopped the thief and held him there until police could arrive to make the official arrest.

Jones’ heroics don’t always involve stopping thieves.

While on a business trip to Florida this week, Jones observed a young woman along with her child involved in a somewhat loud conversation over a cell phone while he was checking into his hotel.

Jones overheard the young woman crying because she had apparently flown to Florida to be with her boyfriend, and after an argument ensued, he left her and her child to fend for themselves with no place to stay and an airline ticket for a flight that didn’t depart for two days.

Jones took it upon himself to offer to put the young lady and her child up in the hotel for the time she needed until her flight could take her back home.

It wasn’t until much later that the young woman was told that she wasn’t just helped out by a young man trying to do a good deed, he just happened to be one of the best fighters in the world.

“It’s just a good testament to his character,” Jones’ manager Malki Kawa of Authentic Sports Management told “I mean the guy walks into a hotel on South Beach, expecting maybe to go to bed or maybe go to dinner, and he sees a young lady that he’s got absolutely no responsibility to, and a young boy that’s absolutely not his responsibility, and just being a good citizen overheard a conversation and felt it was important that he handled their situation for that night. Just being the good guy that he is, helped a fellow citizen in need.”

Jones graciously paid for the room and went about his business, after making sure the woman and her child were safe and taken care of until they could make it back home. The UFC light heavyweight champion might soon have to take on a second job as full-time life saver.

“His bat signal is a JBJ,” Kawa joked about Jon “Bones” Jones, the hero. “You put JBJ up in the clouds, he’ll probably come to the rescue.”

Chalk one more up for Jon Jones – superhero.
