Conor McGregor Playfully Going at it with Jon Jones
Footage has emerged from the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s recent Time Is Now event. Which shows footage of UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor and UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones sparring behind the scenes at their photoshoot. Sparring is perhaps a bit of a stretch… let’s say having some fun. But it’s interesting to note the movement between these two. All we can do is salivate over what a matchup between these two would be like if they were actually the same weight… Unfortunately, it will never happen so for now, this will have to suffice.
But it’s obvious that these two fighters are now perhaps the two biggest name in the sport of mixed martial arts. McGregor became an instant success when he entered the UFC and has since gone on to much bigger and better things. While Jon Jones has continued to fluctuate between superstar and bad boy. Losing his title to sworn enemy Daniel Cormier along the way.
The two MMA fighters have some fun here and play off one another behind the scenes. Mixing in some playful sparring along with a few games to keep them entertained between photoshoots. Are the two friends, perhaps not, but we can see that the two have respect for one another and what they have both achieved in their young careers.
The idea of ever seeing these two actually competing against one another is enough to excite and MMA fan. But of course, it will never happen, as not even Conor McGregor is able to add a further thirty pound plus to his frame to take on the pound for pound Jonny Bones. So, for now, we will just have to sit back and watch these two doing wh they do best. Hopefully someday in a parallel universe, these two will meet again.
