Jon Jones found deadlifting, uploads screaming video to prove it

You thought 545 was crazy? Try 585 on for size!

I once tried deadlifting in college and nearly shit my pants, so full credit to anyone who does this difficult but rewarding exercise as part of their regular workout.

As for me, I'll stick to the seated leg curls.

But I don't have to get locked inside a steel cage with a powerhouse like Daniel Cormier, so nobody cares if I'm a weakling. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, on the other hand, is looking to finish what he started at UFC 182.

And from the looks of these training videos, add an exclamation point.

When and where they hook 'em up remains to be seen, but it's highly unlikely they'll do it in the "Big Apple" (for a whole lot of reasons). Until then, all we can do is sit back and let the anticipation build, which may or may not come to a head with a Sholler sandwich.
