Jon “Bones” Jones has proven that dreams can come true. As the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion gets set to defend his title against Dan Henderson at UFC 151, news has surfaced that Nike has signed Jon Jones to a global sponsorship deal. Not only is Jonny Bones one of the world’s most talented fighters, he’s also about to become the global face of Mixed Martial Arts. The multi-year endorsement deal will have Jones decked out head-to-toe in Nike apparel and footwear for his next several fights, while representing the Swoosh for the first time when he faces Hendo during the main event at UFC 151 on Sept.1. Watch for a signature Nike Jon Jones clothing and footwear line to drop sometime in the near future as well. The champ publicly stated his desire to one day be sponsored by the sports apparel giant. Turns out his dreams have become a reality, while marking a huge moment in the world of MMA clothing. Jones confirmed the news earlier today via Twitter by writing: Blessed to be signed by the biggest sports apparel company in the world
#NIKE Dreams do come true.
