Last week, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones traveled to Brazil for brief -- and entertaining -- media tour.
After giving a seminar in Curitiba, Jones recorded a commercial for the Combate channel in Sao Paulo. During one of the spots, “Bones” did his best Bruce Buffer impersonation by mimicking the famed ring announcer’s “It’s Time” introduction. The series of commercials will begin to air on many of the channels offered by Brazilian cable and satellite provider Globosat, including Combate, SporTV, Multishow, Sexy Hot and Megapix.
Perhaps Jones’ memorable appearance, however, came during a segment on the popular late-night program Altas Horas on the Rede Globo network. Jones was a guest on the episode which aired following last Saturday’s “Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3” finale.
In a light-hearted moment, Jones showed off his Don Juan tendencies on Altas Horas by asking sexologist Laura Muller how often she had sex. When Muller said she couldn’t talk about her private life, Jones switched gears.
“Ask her if she’s ever been with a black guy,” Jones said, drawing laughs from those in attendance.
Things took on a more serious tone later in the program, as Jones also talked about Chael Sonnen, his wins over Brazilian fighters, his friendship with Anderson Silva and his desire to fight in Brazil. Judging by from the reaction of the Brazilian audience, Jones may very well prove to be a solid draw in the South American country somewhere down the road.
