The American fighter is a Christian and has strong faith in Jesus Christ. Jones even tattooed “Philippians 4:13” on his chest. It’s easy to think that Jones is doing it for publicity. However, he has been firm on his belief for a long time.

“We just pray man. We thank God so much for all the blessings he has done in my life. And for having healthy children and what he’s doing in our brothers’ lives. And for the progression and the maturity that he’s allowed me to have,” Jon Jones told MMA Junkie in 2015.
