I don't know how many of you follow UFC (and don't go crazy, South Florida fans. That's Ultimate Fighting Championship, not to be confused with UCF).

Anyway, I'm not much of a mixed martial arts guy, but I did take notice that Jon Jones won the light heavyweight title at UFC 128 over the weekend. What's that got to do with this blog? Well, Jones's older brother is former Syracuse defensive tackle and current Baltimore Raven Arthur Jones. And his younger brother is Chandler Jones, current defensive end for the Orange and a star in the making in his own right.

Both the Syracuse Jones brothers have told me to look out for Jon whenever I've talked to them. And they weren't kidding.

That's a pretty impressive family. I wouldn't mess with them, at least not until I go through several more Cincinnati football workouts.
