New England Patriot defensive end and Super Bowl champion Chandler Jones is calling out his own flesh and blood, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones. Chandler told TMZ Sports that he wants to fight Jon:
“Me and my brother used to fight all the time when we were young … and I’m pretty sure I can take him down now. I am way bigger than he is.”
It’s not going to be a regular fight, though. Chandler is angling for a charity battle:
“It will be fun if we actually did a one-round match for charity … that would be fun. If I win, he would have to donate to the charity of my choice and vice versa.”
Chandler thinks he can just throw Jon to the ground, which is what Daniel Cormier thought and that didn’t turn out very well for the former Olympian. Of course, Jon has said that Chandler is the most athletic of the three brothers, while it took Jon and Chandler teaming up to beat up biggest brother Arthur when they were kids.
The likelihood of Bill Belichick signing off on a fight, even a one-round charity match, is extremely slim, if only for the fact that there’s a chance Chandler gets his eyes gouged out by Jon.
