Jon Jones says his brother, Arthur Jones is better than him, wants him in the UFC and “Cain Velasquez would get smashed!”

UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones has been praising his brother Arthur this week as he looks to make a name for himself in the sport of mixed martial arts, explaining he’s even better than him and that he’d “smash” Cain Velasquez.

Jones, speaking via ESPN.co.uk, said:

“Arthur’s considering it and he’s training. I just talked to him today and he said ‘man, my jiu-jitsu’s getting so much better.’ I guess he’s using his wrestling base, and his size alone is crazy to deal with. He’s just a smart dude. I think he’s going to do well if he ever gets cut or leaves the NFL. I’m biased. I really want my brother to be in the UFC with me; that would be so sweet.”

“I think if you gave Arthur two years of training he could be very well considered one of the top heavyweights. He’s training it now. He’s always been a better wrestler than me, he’s always better than me. I’ve never been a team captain. He’s been a team captain at everything, the football team, the wrestling team. Since day one, he’s been a leader. He’s just gifted. He just has timing, and body coordination, and light feet. Everything.”

“Cain Velasquez would get smashed!”
