Jon Jones Celebrates Super Bowl Win with Brother and Ravens Defensive End Arthur

Scott Harris@ScottHarrisMMAMMA Lead WriterFebruary 4, 2013

Jim and John Harbaugh weren't the only brothers celebrating a championship connection on Super Bowl Sunday.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones joined his brother, Baltimore Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones, on the field following the Ravens Super Bowl XLVII 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at the New Orleans Superdome.

Jon Jones took to Twitter to document his experiences during and after the game, including several candid photos of himself, Arthur and their brother, Chandler—himself a defensive end for the New England Patriots. The result was a rather interesting behind-the-scenes look at the Ravens and the Jones family taking in the spectacle that is the Super Bowl.

The choice tweets included this:

 

And this:


Arthur Jones, a star at Syracuse who the Ravens picked in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft, made his presence felt on Sunday night, recording two tackles and a sack and making a critical fumble recovery in the second quarter that stopped a 49ers drive deep in Baltimore territory.

Jon Jones is scheduled to defend his light heavyweight belt against Chael Sonnen on April 27 at UFC 159. Jones, 25, won the title with a TKO victory over Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 128 in 2011. His fight with Sonnen will be his fifth title defense. The two men are coaching against each other on the 17th season of The Ultimate Fighter. 

Chandler Jones, for one, seems impressed with brother Jon's workout regimen; he's reportedly planning some MMA training with Jon during the upcoming offseason. Arthur's Ravens defeated Chandler's Patriots Jan. 20 in the AFC Championship Game.
