This fighter was born on the 19th of July 1987 in Rochester, New York, the United States. At Union-Endicott High School in upstate New York, he excelled as a wrestler in high school and won the state championship. It was at high school he got his nickname too. Upon deciding to focus on fighting, this young man dropped out of college and began his career. He debuted as an MMA pro in April 2008 and went 6-0 in just three months. UFC noticed his meteoric rise and quickly signed him up to their label.

He earned his debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship against Andre Gusmão on August 9, 2008. An innovative and dynamic fighter, this American is one of the most unorthodox fighters to ever step into the octagon. He has also been described as a creative fighter who can turn just about any situation to his advantage. This former light heavyweight champion has had his differences with the UFC. However, he is still with them and has expressed his desire to become a heavyweight. Whilst some may see that as a tad ambitious, we think that he should go for it if he believes that he can do it. Will Dana and the UFC listen?
Jon Jones Girlfriend
Bones’ personal life has never been the same ever since his fiancée left him. Jessie Moses is that woman, and she happens to be his high school sweetheart. The man lost his marbles completely when he put his hand on her. She was left bloodied and even thought about leaving him. Charges were filed, and it seemed like their relationship was over. The pair did give their fans one last ray of hope when they appeared to have reconciled. That wasn’t going to be the case, though.
