- Jon Jones will return to the UFC to compete for the vacant heavyweight title
- One fan had a strange request granted by Jones when he first met the fighter
- Bones proved a man can 'sleep' in seconds by hooking in a rear naked choke
Jon Jones is one of the baddest men on the planet.
The former light heavyweight champion only suffered one loss in his career (via disqualification) and is considered one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time.
It's therefore only natural that many fans will want to meet the man they call Bones.
While fans flock to get Jones' signature, not everyone is crazy enough to ask the UFC star to choke them out. But that's exactly what one fan did, Give Me Sport reported.

The young man wanted to know how dangerous a rear naked choke actually was, asking the superstar to perform the hold on him.
In a video shared via Twitter, Bones can be seen putting the fan to sleep within seconds.
Once he passes out, Jones lays him flat on the ground before lifting his legs up to get the blood flowing back to his head.
Jones will be hoping that he can finish Ciryl Gane in record time, when the two meet in March for the vacant heavyweight title.
The belt became vacant after Francis Ngannou was stripped of the title and released by the UFC earlier this month.

Bones will compete at UFC 285, where he will fight for the heavyweight title vacated by Ngannou earlier this month.
