The third edition of “The Body Issue” by ESPN the Magazine will feature the current  UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones in nothing but his birthday suit. Jones is not the first Mixed Martial Arts star to appear in “The Body Issue”, he’s actually the fifth, but the champ is the first from the UFC. 

If you’re unfamiliar with “The Body Issue” it’s a complete issue of ESPN the Magazine featuring pictures of athletes, past and present showing their bodies in an artful way, with little to no clothes own. Over the three years athletes from all sports have been featured in “The Body Issue” including, Adrian Peterson (NFL), Serena Williams (Tennis), Manny Pacquiao (Boxing), Apolo Anton Ohno (Speed Skating) and Amare Stoudemire (NBA).

Other MMA fighters who have been featured in “The Body Issue” have been Gina Carano, Herschel Walker, Evangelista Santos and Christiane Santos.

My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
