Tweet of the Day: The 'other' Jon Jones rewarded by Reebok for dealing with all the online hate

A different Jon Jones was getting a lot of the heat from the real Jon Jones' cocaine debacle, so Reebok rewarded him with a shirt for being a good sport.

Jon Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion, has social media accounts under @JonnyBones, while Jon Jones, random art outsourcing manager holds the @JonJones account.
