UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will appear on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” this Thursday (March 24) to discuss winning the title from Mauricio “Shogun” Rua this past weekend at UFC 128 and helping to stop a thief just hours before the bout in Newark, New Jersey.
“Congrats, Jon Jones. First UFC fighter to do the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” UFC President Dana White announced on Twitter. “The hits keep on coming! Tune in Thursday on NBC!”
The 23-year-old Jones dominated Rua before earning a third-round TKO of the champion in UFC 128’s main event.
