Jon Jones vs. Chandler Jones Brother Versus Brother Bout Not Likely

Fans who were interested in the idea of a brother vs. brother charity fight between UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and his New England Patriots big brother Chandler Jones can now move on.

Why?

Well, as the New England Patriots Vice President of Media Relations recently explained to TMZ, if Chandler were to actually go through with it, he would likely be risking his entire professional football career.

Below is what the Patriots V.P. of Media Relations had to say on the matter:

“It’s not a matter of if we’d allow Chandler to fight his brother. We can’t stop the players from doing what they want. But he might be voiding his contract obligations to the team if he went out and did it. Without getting into a specific contract, there have to be clauses [in contracts] that protect the team … restrictions of physical activity that would risk injury. Whether it be skiing, jumping out of a plane or riding a motorcycle without a helmet in a state that requires one. I think they’re having fun, but do I think fighting is something they’re actually serious about? No. They’re brothers. They have a sibling rivalry. Take the Gronkowski brothers … there’s not a Gronk among them that would say Rob’s better at anything.”
