Daytona 500 results: Jon Jones does victory laps as 'Honorary Race Official'

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones wasn't at the 54th annual Daytona 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series just to pose with models, actresses and race car drivers.

Not that he didn't do it, mind you, but that's not the only reason he was there.

"Bones" was named "Honorary Race Official" for NASCAR's yearly super-show, and aside from his duties at the Daytona International Speedway, he was also on hand to promote the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA), which is now broadcast on the FOX network.

Which just so happens to be airing the Daytona 500 tonight (Feb. 27, 2012) at 7 p.m. ET.

Jones and Co. were rained out of Sunday's original start time, prompting race officials to postpone the event for the first time in history. Maybe mother nature isn't a NASCAR fan? Either way, the UFC was able to get a few good looks this weekend and will undoubtedly get some air time promoting its upcoming events during tonight's broadcast.

UFC on FOX 3 is just around the corner.
