UFC's Jon Jones Chokes Fan Unconscious, Immediately Revives Him

Imagine being choked out by a UFC fighter. Imagine if that fighter is Jon Jones.

Well, for some bizarre reason, a fan wanted to be choked out by Jones at a fitness show in Germany.

The UFC light-heavyweight champion made an appearance at the FIBO fitness trade show in Cologne over the weekend, and he had a pretty eventful time to say the least.

A fan asked Jones to put him in a rear naked choke hold and he obliged. Yes, really. Why? We haven't got a f**king clue.

Once putting him to sleep, Jones immediately revived the poor lad by lifting his legs. The pair embrace after he's awake.

Meanwhile, Jones will be back inside the famed Octagon at UFC 239 on July 6. He's set to defend his 205 lbs title against Brazilian slugger Thiago Santos.

The American is making up for lost time following his drug ban.

He returned from his lengthy suspension versus Alexander Gustafsson, and made a swift return to the cage by beating Anthony Smith in March.

Jones' rattling off contenders with a move up to heavyweight on the cards.

He even teased his followers on Twitter by posting a message to ex-UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

And Jones' coach is intrigued by that match-up.

"I would be intrigued by that fight because it's one of those styles that Stipe is very good at what he does," Mike Winkeljohn said.

"I mean, the man can wrestle, the man can punch, so he can do so many talented things, so you have to watch out. So it's kind of a challenge for us as coaches and as a team.

"So that would be exciting. I think Jon would be excited about, always about the challenge.

"Jon's always up for the challenge, he always gets excited about it. He's always watching fight tape. I think the UFC would have to throw a lot of money at him. They want to make money too, so I can't blame Jon for wanting to make some money as well."

Will Jones make the transition to heavyweight in 2019? Here's hoping.
