UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones will apparently follow a long list of fighters giving films a shot after revealing he’d met with studio executives and planned to try his hand at action of the scripted variety in the foreseeable future. Fortunately, it is unlikely it will interfere with his in-Octagon career based on the likelihood of big screen success.
“My first meeting today is with the president of MGM studios, wish me luck,” exclaimed Jones on Twitter, later adding the sit down “went perfect” and assuring doubters he could indeed act
Jones’ next outing in the ring is scheduled for September 21 in Toronto at UFC 165 where he’ll face Alexander Gustafsson. If successful the victory will mark a record-breaking sixth straight defense of the divisional strap.
