Jon Jones puts on show again in weight room

Being the best fighter on the planet isn't enough for Jon Jones, apparently.

The former light heavyweight champion was recently reinstated by the UFC, and it looks like he's elevating his already-ridiculous game – with powerlifting.

After fueling up with a monstrous burger, Jones hit the weight room. The results were impressive to say the least. See for yourself:

We've seen fighters add bulk, become obsessed with the weight room and actually diminish their skills, but something tells me a freakish athlete like Jones will only improve with his seemingly renewed focus and dedication.

That's a scary thought. Jones' showdown against current titleholder Daniel Cormier just can't come soon enough.
