Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones is perhaps the greatest mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter in the game today, racking up an impressive 20-1 record with 15 violent finishes.
Turns out he had plenty of practice.
His old college roommate and former wrestling buddy Colby Covington has given fight fans a glimpse of what "Bones" was like in his younger days, and let's just say it was a rough couple of years for the "townies."
From the MMA Roasted podcast (via FOX Sports):
"We got into a lot of trouble. When you're in a small town in Iowa, a lot of kids are farm kids and they always wanted to start some stuff with the wrestlers and I was a national champ in college and Jon was a national champ, so they'd always try to pick fights at our house parties and stuff. We would just clear out the place of a bunch of townies. Especially Jon -- he'd be throwing people through windows and stuff. It was nuts. He has a bad temper, when he gets mad -- he gets mad."
Have a listen:
If so, make sure you watch Jones try to treat Daniel Cormier like a drunken farm kid at the UFC 182 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Jan. 3, 2015 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (more on that here).
Fortunately, there are no windows inside the Octagon.
