UFC star Jon Jones bizarrely trains in full camo gear with MACHINE GUN to help gain muscle in step up to heavyweight
JON JONES showed off his bizarre new training method – as he worked out in full camo gear with a MACHINE GUN.
The all-time UFC great is preparing to make a move up to heavyweight next year, and looks to have found inventive ways of packing on the pounds.
Jones uploaded two videos on his Instagram doing pull-ups in army camouflage uniform.
But in the second, he does so with a machine gun strapped around his torso with a pistol by his waist.
Jones posted a picture beforehand at his Albuquerque gym in New Mexico, surrounded by others in army wear.
The 33-year-old appears to be incorporating military training into his camp to help mentally prepare with the experience of fighting outside the cage.

Jones wrote online: "Sometime learning how to fight in different environments is a necessity for growth.
"Show me your friend I will show you your future. Train with the best."
Jones recently vacated his light-heavyweight crown to step up, where Stipe Miocic, 38, reigns as champion.
But he will be overlooked for an immediate title shot, with Franics Ngannou – who lost to Miocic in 2018 – next in line with a rematch.
UFC president Dana White told BT Sport: “No, he doesn’t get the jump over Francis and fight for a title.
“I don’t know what we’re going to do or how it’s going to play out but we’re working on it.”
Jones has not fought since narrowly beating Dominick Reyes, 30, by split-decision in February.
But after a positive chat with the American legend, White is confident he will return in 2021 and on good terms with the UFC.
White said: “Jon Jones and I had the best conversation that we’ve ever had about a week ago and he’s ready.
“He’s ready to come back, his head’s in the right place and he and I are in a really good place.”
