If you're Jon Jones' family, this week was one for the scrapbook.
Not only did "Bones" successfully defend his UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 145 on Saturday with a dominant performance against his former friend and training partner Rashad Evans, his younger brother, Chandler Jones, was drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft by the New England Patriots.
The Patriots traded up to select the 265-pound defensive end from Syracuse University with the 21st pick overall. He will now join the oldest Jones, Arthur, a defensive end for the Baltimore Ravens, in the NFL.
"My brother Arthur has taught me a lot going through this whole draft process," Chandler said on a media call after being selected. "Having a brother in the NFL is a great advantage. (Jon) is a professional fighter. That's what he's paid to do, and I respect that. I was in Atlanta and I was sitting with Arthur in the front row supporting him. It was one of his toughest fights, and I thank God that he came out with a win."
The UFC has been promoting the Jones family as the most athletic in America, and after Jon's big win last weekend and Thursday's draft, they just may be right.

Can anyone top the big three of Silva, Jones, and GSP as the best pound-for-pounder fighter?
