Jon, Chandler and Arthur Jones (Combat Lifestyle)

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones now will have divided loyalties come this football season. His younger brother Chandler was drafted by the New England Patriots. Jones' older brother Arthur plays for the Baltimore Ravens.

As Les Carpenter pointed out in this must-read piece, the Jones family is one of the most athletic in America. All three sons are now professional athletes. In an interview with Cagewriter, Jon once said that Chandler is the best of them all.

Jon's loyalty will be tested in September, when the Patriots will head to Baltimore to face the Ravens. Jon has to hope he is not scheduled to fight at UFC 152 in Toronto, which is happening the night before his brothers play each other.
