Ravens' Arthur Jones Thinks Brother Will Be UFC Heavyweight Champ

The brother of Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones isalready the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. Jon Jones won the Light Heavyweight title and now is looking to defend it against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in what should be a great fight in September. According to a story on MMA Torch, the Ravens' Jones think his younger brother can bulk up and become the UFC Heavyweight Champion at some point.

First, he need to defend his title and prove he is the best light heavyweight out there. Then, as the 23 year old grows and matures, he should be able to put more weight on his current 205 pound frame. The story focuses on Jon's "ridiculous" reach, reported to be the longrest in UFC history.

As big and strong as Jon Jones is, he is still small in comparison to the Ravens' Jones, who at 6'3" and 313 pounds, dwarfs his thinner baby brother despite being an inch shorter than the MMA fighter.
