UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones joined the ESPN First Take debate desk on Tuesday to cover several topic, chief among them was rehashing his decision to decline a short-notice fight with Chael Sonnen at UFC 151.
Jones now is lined up to face former UFC light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 on Saturday night in Toronto.
Not only did Jones explain his thoughts surrounding UFC 151, but he also discussed reconciling his Christian beliefs with competing in a rather violent sport, his beef with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, and growing up in an athletic family (Jones has two brothers in the NFL).
