Jon Jones Hints At ‘Surprise’ Walkout Song For UFC 172
When light heavyweight champion Jon Jones makes his walk to the cage, he typically does so while 50 Cent’s “God Gave Me Style” plays in the arena. But this Saturday, he has something different in store for the fans.
UFC 172 will be taking place this coming weekend at the Baltimore Arena, and will see Jones taking on hard-hitting challenger Glover Teixeira in the main event. When asked about the fight at the UFC’s media day, Jones hinted at having something up his long sleeve:
“I’ve got a nice surprise for the people of Baltimore, for the intro. I think they’ll enjoy it.”
Jones wouldn’t add much about his planned walkout song, but did mention that it would be “a little something funky,” and “a little something different.”
“I usually come out to ‘God Gave Me Style’ by 50 [Cent], and God’s definitely going to give me some style on this next one,” Jones said. “I’ll just say that.”
Well. Color me vaguely, remotely, sort-of curious. I guess.
