  • Patriots DE Chandler Jones Wants Charity Fight with UFC Champion Brother By: C.J. Tuttle

    Who would win a charity fight between Jon and Chandler Jones? | Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com



    Jon Jones is widely regarded as the pound-for-pound best mixed martial artist in the world, but that’s not stopping his younger brother from calling him out for a fight.

    Chandler Jones, the 24-year-old defensive end for the Super Bowl XLIX champion New England Patriots, said that he would often get the better of “Bones” when the two siblings would tussle as kids.

    "Me and my brother used to fight all the time when we were young,” Jones told TMZ Sports. “I'm pretty sure I can take him down now. I am way bigger than he is. I would just throw him to the ground."

    It’s hard to imagine Jones being defeated by anyone, let alone an NFL player who has never set foot inside the Octagon, but if the two ever did face each other it would be solely for the greater good.

    "It will be fun if we actually did a one-round match for charity; that would be fun,” Chandler said. “If I win, he would have to donate to the charity of my choice and vice versa.”

    What does Jon think about the idea? That remains a mystery. But Chandler also added that his head, coach, Bill Belichick, would likely prevent the super fight from coming to fruition.

    "I don't know how my coach would feel about it," Chandler added. "I don't think it would fly."
