Two years ago, Jon Jones and Urijah Faber played themselves in a K-Swiss commercial with fictional prankster “Kenny Powers.” These days, they also like to watch fights together, according to this week’s “UFC: Ultimate Insider.”

The UFC light-heavyweight champ and perennial bantamweight contender were mic’d up when they sat cageside for July’s UFC 162, and their reactions to Chris Weidman‘s historic upset of Anderson Silva are priceless (skip to the 3:00 mark).

In attempting to comprehend Silva’s loss, Jones also captures the feelings of so many fans who felt Silva had gone too far in clowning the new champion.

“You’ve gotta respect the game, man,” he said. “I know Anderson respects the game, but you’ve gotta respect the game. None of us are invincible.”

Jones fights next at this weekend’s UFC 165 event, where he meets Alexander Gustafsson in the headlining bout.

For a look at the event, check out the UFC 165 extended video preview.
