Gronkowski getting Chandler ready for Jon Jones superfight: 'I been training him all week'

It looks like Chandler is taking his potential bout against his brother seriously, and has taken on some premiere training talent.

Some may have laughed when New England Patriots linebacker (and Super Bowl winner) Chandler Jones called out his brother Jon Jones for a one-round charity superfight. But it looks like Chandler is taking the whole thing pretty seriously. TMZ caught up with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, along with the younger Jones brother in New York to talk about Gronk's dancing skills, his hatred of Miami Dolphins emblazoned hats, and getting Chandler ready for a the fight of his life. Here's what Gronk had to say about working with Chandler (transcript via Bleacher Report):

"I didn't [take the reporter out]," Gronkowski said. "I came here to New York City. ... I spent [Valentine's Day] with Chandler and [pro wrestler] Mojo Rawley."

"Tell Jon 'Bones' Jones I'm looking for him," Jones added.

"Who you got your money on, Gronk?" the reporter asked.

"I got Chandler. I been training him all week," Gronkowski said.

There you have it. We've got a serious fight on our hands. Super serious.

In the meantime, Jon Jones is expected to face Anthony Johnson sometime in the near future for the UFC light heavyweight title, although no official date has been set.
