UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has a very big fight this Saturday at UFC 172 when he will defend his title against Glover Teixeira.
However, while doing some media rounds in New York City recently, Jones was stopped by TMZ, a celebrity gossip site, and asked some non-MMA questions.
Jones mentioned former NFL star Ray Lewis as someone who could potentially “scrap” if they decided to step into the Octagon. Lewis was a teammate of Jones’ brother, Arthur, and helped lead the Baltimore Ravens to two Super Bowl titles.
“I don’t know, but he is a former wrestler,” Jones said. “And his attitude on the football field. He could put it down.”
In more important and “manly” news, Jones was asked who has the greatest butt in Hollywood.
“Beyonce, she runs the world,” he said. “That’s the one.”
But Beyonce wouldn’t be “the one” if Jones was able to hook up with any other woman besides his fiance.
“My fiance already knows: Alicia Keys is the one,” Jones admitted. “She always has been.”
Jones stated he is walking around at 220 pounds just days ahead of his fight, and knows it will be “a great challenge for me. But I don’t get nervous anymore. I’ve been rolling with the big dogs and fighting in the fast lane.”
