Video: Dancing Rob Gronkowski training Patriots pal Chandler Jones for UFC fight against Jon Jones


Rob Gronkowski, NFL tight end for the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots, claims he's getting into the mixed martial arts (MMA) business as a trainer for team mate Chandler Jones, who keeps calling out brother "Bones," the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight titleholder.

"I talked to Jon the other day and I think he's scared," Chandler told TMZ. "Jon 'Bones' Jones is running from me. I called him out, I talked to his manager. I'm right here looking for you ... what's up?"

His older sibling responded to the "lies" on Twitter (see it here).

The purpose of their fight would be to raise money for charity; however, "Bones" has bigger fish to fry at the moment. Anthony Johnson is waiting for his crack at the 205-pound crown at the UFC 187 pay-per-view (PPV) event in May (more on that here).

Maybe "Rumble" can ditch the Blackzilian camp and start hitting mitts with GRONK!!!
