Jon “Bones” Jones receives Blue Belt


Jon Jones has been promoted to blue belt in spite of an impressive MMA career.

The former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and man who were widely considered one of — if not the — best mixed martial artists in the world received his belt from four-time No-Gi World Heavyweight Champion Roberto Alencar from Gracie Barra New Mexico.

Bones posted the picture on his Instagram with the message:

That’s not to say that Jon “Bones” Jones is “just a blue belt” though. He manhandled high-ranking jiu-jitsu practitioners and he tapped BJJ black belt Vitor Belfort via an Americana. Next week, Jon Jones will have a chance to get another belt wrapped around his waist — this one, black and gold — when he takes on reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and heated rival, Daniel Cormier. Until then, Jones can enjoy his new blue belt.
