Tweet of the Day: UFC Champ Jon Jones is 'Skinny Fat'

Photo by Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones posted a photo of himself being "skinny fat" before training camp.

Today is the first day of Jon Jones' UFC 165 training camp, where he will look to make the 6th straight defense of his light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson. Now considered as the No. 1 Pound-for-Pound MMA fighter, Jones took to twitter and said he's always "lazy" in between fights. He even has a photo to prove it:

It's definitely not even comparable to the massive weight gain that Mark Munoz had to overcome, but it's indeed a contrast to the final product which will look much like that weigh-in photo above. He still has over 8 weeks to get back in top form though, so it's really nothing to worry about. If you remember from our past "How's Taste My Tweet Tweet?" editions, Jones did look very similar in between bouts against Belfort and Evans.
