Jacked! Jon Jones stares down Anthony Johnson in Las Vegas swole-off (Pic)

Thick & Swole is not the name of some new WWE tag team, but rather the best way to describe former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rivals Jon Jones and Anthony Johnson, who came together during the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding festivities last weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jones was there representing GAT Supplements, the sports nutrition company that signed “Bones” to a new sponsorship deal earlier this month. Johnson, on the other hand, was in town because lifting weights is his new hobby, and what better place to see the jacked among us than Sin City?

The two were actually scheduled to collide at the UFC 187 pay-per-view (PPV) event back in early 2015; however, Jones was involved in a hit-and-run accident and stripped of his strap. That paved the way for Daniel Cormier to step in and submit “Rumble,” claiming the crown in the process.

Johnson would eventually retire from mixed martial arts (MMA) while Jones continued to struggle with his career. “Bones” is currently wrapping up a drug-test suspension after pissing hot in the wake of UFC 214. That said, all signs point to his inevitable return, based on this.

I hear this upcoming event needs a headliner...
