Jon Jones on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' this Thursday (March 24) on NBC

Jones-point_medium

UFC light heavyweight champion, New Jersey crime fighter, Tonight Show guest.

Those are just a few of the roles for 205-pound fight phenom Jon Jones, who next week will probably disarm the nukes in North Korea before heading to Libya to enforce the No-Fly Zone.

This Thursday night however, he'll join Kirstie Alley and Peter, Bjorn and John (and Jon) as just the third UFC fighter to ever appear on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

From UFC President Dana White:

Congrats @jonnybones 1st UFC fighter to do the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The hits keep on coming!!!! Tune in thur on NBC!

"Bones" completed his journey to MMA superstardom by dethroning Mauricio "Shogun" Rua last Saturday night (March 19) at UFC 128 in Newark.

A few hours before the fight, Jones helped his coaches from Jackson's MMA apprehend a burglar on foot at a nearby park in Paterson, NJ.

Any guess as to what Leno will ask him about on March 24? (duh)

Stay tuned.
