Blowoutcards.com on Wednesday announced that it has inked undefeated UFC light heavyweight Jon “Bones” Jones to a two-fight deal that will include autographs from the fighter as well as the Blowoutcards.com logo on Jones’ fight shorts.
Jones, who sports the longest reach in UFC history at 84 1/2 inches, is 8-0 and will headline the Dec. 5 Ultimate Fighter Live Finale on Spike against former “Ultimate Fighter” champion Matt Hamill. Blowoutcards.com also will receive the shorts worn next Saturday by Jones, known for his vicious spinning elbows.
“[Jones] is an amazing talent,” says Thomas Fish, the president of Blowoutcards.com. “His work ethic and unorthodox style continues to impress and we are proud to be a sponsor.”
Fish is an avid fan of mixed martial arts who brought UFC superstar Rich Franklin to the last summer’s National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland for a two-day signing session.
