UFC's Jon Jones Chokes Fan Unconscious, Immediately Revives Him
Imagine being choked out by a UFC fighter. Imagine if that fighter is light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Well, for some bizarre reason, a fan wanted to be choked out by Jones at a fitness show in Germany.
He made an appearance at the FIBO fitness trade show in Cologne earlier in the year and put a fan to sleep.
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 embraced after he woke up.
Since that appearance in Germany, Jones has defended his 205lbs title against Thiago Santos. He beat the Brazilian slugger by split-decision in a controversial result at UFC 239.
The American is set to defend his title against Dominick Reyes next at UFC 247.

Speaking at the pre-fight press conference, Jones said to Reyes: "You're a pawn in this game. I've been saying it a long time. Like (Daniel Cormier), like all of them, you're a pawn in this game. You're just a piece in the puzzle. I'm trying to be great, bro, and you're just a part of it. You're just a small part of it
"You're the one? You knocked out Chris Weidman. He's been knocked out so many times. Good job," Jones added.
"I don't have to knock out people. I don't have to knock out people. The only way you can possibly win this fight is to catch me with a left. We all know that. I could submit you, I could out-wrestle you, I can kickbox you to death. I'm going to get you. I'm going to get you, Dominick. You know it. You're a one-trick pony. We saw your highlight reel. It was straight left, straight left, straight left."
