UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones welcomes new contender — his newborn daughter

Maggie Hendricks

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones sent out a tweet early Monday morning that he would soon have big news to share. Would it be about his fight on April 27 with Chael Sonnen? Something about the latest episode of "The Ultimate Fighter?" Nah, it was much better than that. Jones shared the news that he and girlfriend Jessie Moses had welcomed their third child into the world.

Though Jones was beaming with pride and clearly happy to be there for the birth of his third daughter, he still is a fighter. They always hate to miss a workout.
