(Video) Jon Jones hits Muhammad Ali’s grandson with the Ali Shuffle in playful skit

At the PFL 5 event on June 16, an exciting encounter took place between mixed martial arts legend Jon Jones and the late boxing icon Muhammad Ali’s grandson, Nico Ali Walsh.

The two  were seen engaging in a playful sparring session, showcasing their skills and creating an entertaining moment for the combat sports community.

During their conversation, Jones (27-1-1 MMA) playfully struck Walsh (8-0-1 boxing), and in response, the young boxer lightheartedly struck Jones back. The duo continued their jesting display, simulating a sparring match. Adding to the fun, Jones even performed Muhammad Ali’s famous ‘Ali Shuffle,’ paying homage to the boxing legend.

The interaction between Jones and Walsh quickly gained attention in the combat sports world. Fans praised Jones, hailing him as one of the greatest UFC stars of all time and drawing comparisons to the legendary rapper Drake. A video capturing their exchange was shared on a social media account, prompting enthusiastic responses from viewers.

In the comments section, fans expressed admiration for Jones’  prowess and intelligence. Some noted that even in a playful scenario, his skills shone through, affirming his status as a highly talented athlete. Others appreciated Jones’ calm demeanor, describing him as a laid-back individual. The positive reception highlighted the respect and admiration fans have for the MMA superstar.

Jones recently returned to the sport after a three-year hiatus. He made a successful debut in the heavyweight division, defeating Ciryl Gane at UFC 285 to claim the vacant UFC heavyweight title.

Since then, there have been rumors of potential matchups for Jones, including a possible bout against boxing legend Tyson Fury or a showdown with former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, which could potentially serve as his retirement.

UFC president Dana White hinted at the possibility of Jones facing Miocic at the annual pay-per-view event held at Madison Square Garden in November. While no official announcement has been made regarding Jones’ next opponent and comeback date, fans eagerly anticipate his next move in the octagon.
