​Jon Jones choking out a fan unconscious, then immediately coming to his rescue is still one of the most bizarre MMA encounters in the sport's history.

​For some strange reason, a fan wanted to be choked out by the UFC legend.

The former UFC light-heavyweight champion made an appearance at the FIBO fitness trade show in Cologne, Germany, a few years ago - and, it's safe to say, he had a pretty eventful time.

A fan asked Jones to put him in a submission hold, with 'Bones' obliging as he performed a rear naked choke. 

Yes, really. Imagine wanting to be choked out by a man who has submitted some of the scariest fighters in UFC history...

Well, Jones locked in the submission and put the fan to sleep. He immediately revived the person, lifting his legs.

He woke up looking fairly groggy as the pair embraced. What a moment.

Jones is no stranger to applying the choke hold, having submitted the likes of Ryan Bader, Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson and Lyoto Machida during his legendary run at 205lbs.  

Of course, he's since vacated the UFC light-heavyweight championship in a bid to claim the UFC heavyweight title.

The 34-year-old is eyeing a super-fight against UFC heavyweight king Francis Ngannou, who beat Ciryl Gane last month. 

Jones, meanwhile, hasn't fought since his victory over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 back in February 2020.
