Jon Jones’ daughter follows in his father’s footsteps by developing his strike during the coronavirus lockdown.
In recent weeks, the heavyweight champion has been making the headlines for a drunk driving (DWI) arrest in his hometown of Albercurcue, New Mexico. Now, “Bones” is in the news for positive reasons as he spends his time productively while locking.
On social media, the 32-year-old shared a video training with his daughter. According to Jones, her daughter only had one week of lessons, but she takes it up pretty quickly!
My granddaughters are almost finished their first week of strike class, I would say they take it fairly quickly. pic.twitter.com/9GIoIx5kLh

Jones is currently engaged to his longtime partner, Jessie Moses. The couple are in love with childhood and started dating when they were at Endicott High School, near Binghamton, New York. They share three young girls together. In an interview with Joe Rogan, Jones revealed that he had four daughters, indicating that he has a child from a separate or previous relationship.
It’s no surprise that Jones’s children have a natural flair for combat sports, as they share DNA with one of the most reputable GOATs in the UFC. Her video is a rare glimpse into her life behind closed doors. Despite public controversy, Jones and his partner rarely disclose information about their family life.
Jones would not be the first parent where combat sports take place in the family. Anderson’s son Silva is a kickboxer enthusiast and has claimed two belts in his last competition. Featherweight fighter Kron Gracie made his UFC debut in 2019 and is the son of BJJ royalty, Rickson Gracie. Even a former UFC bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey has combat sports in her line. The WWE wrestler and lover of judo is the daughter of professional wrestler Roddy Piper.
Who knows what the future holds for young Jon Jones girls. But one thing is certain, the world of MMA always needs more great attackers!
