It took a much smaller man to prove it, but UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones can be taken down. Check out the video description:
The first international episode of Sensei Noção, the Brazilian reality show about sick and insane challenges in a MMA world, will be released in April 14, one week before Jones vs. Evans. The journalist and Sensei SporTV´s host Mario Filho (aka Marinho), after faced and being smashed by the former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida, the heavyweight champion Junior Cigano dos Santos, the 4X world boxing Champion Acelino Popó Freitas, now put his head on the line against the current number one light heavyweight of the UFC Jon “Bones” Jones!!!! Pay close attention to the first time that Jonathan Jones was ever taken down!
Granted, he was taking it relatively easy on the guy with his striking, but the dude walked through a knee and took the champ down, so that has to count for something.
