UFC 145 Video: Jon Jones Gets Another Muhammad Ali Reference

Jon Jones recreated a classic Muhammad Ali photo for the cover of UFC Magazine.

A few days ago, Jon Jones was part of a photo-shoot that recreated an iconic Muhammad Ali image for the cover of UFC Magazine. Today, a new UFC 145 promo has been released, and while all of the other event promos have been excellent, this one, I didn't really enjoy that much. It's a pretty awful song, and again they made yet another ridiculous reference to Ali.

To quote Brent Brookhouse when he talked about the comparison:

In the video, photographer Michael Muller says that Jones is "our 21st century Muhammad Ali" which is a ridiculous statement on a number of levels, but hey...we live in an age where nothing is it's own original something and has to be the "new" version of something.

He's a tremendous athlete and a beast of a fighter, but he is nothing like Ali. Sure, I do get why they're doing it, but Jon Jones, is Jon Jones. There's no one that's like him either, so they don't really need to make these silly comparisons.
