Chandler Jones has to be kidding. Or, at least, we hope. A few days ago, Chandler told TMZ, "Me and my brother used to fight all the time when we were young ... and I'm pretty sure I can take him down now. I am way bigger than he is." The brother he is referring to is none other than UFC fighter and light heavyweight champion, Jon "Bones" Jones. And yes, he wants to take him on in the ring, or maybe, an Octagon.
While the Patriots' defensive end has stated that the bout would be for charity, there's no telling if this will actually go down because, according to Chandler, Bones has been ducking him. In the video above, the youngest of the Jones brothers—which includes Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle Arthur Jones—reaches out to Jon with the TMZ cameras watching only to have his call end up going straight to voicemail.
TMZ also caught up with Jones' teammate Rob Gronkowski, who said he has been training Chandler "all week" for the possible fight.
