UFC Light Heavyweight Jon Jones

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be the most popular kid on campus? Well, Jon Jones (Pictured) was the top dog on ESPN’s campus Tuesday when the “Worldwide Leader in Sports” put the reigning UFC light heavyweight king through their infamous “carwash.”

They call it a carwash because they send guests from one show to another throughout the day, like an assembly line.

Jones started his morning with a SportsCenter segment and ran the gamut all the way through to SportsNation. The skyrocketing superstar even found the time to take a picture with NFL great Jerry Rice.

Oh, and for you fanboys who think the MMA media asks softball questions, Jones was hitting grand slams with the inquiries ESPN was lobbing at him.

Of course, Jones was at ESPN hyping Saturday’s UFC 152 showdown with Vitor Belfort. The 205-pounders headline tomorrow’s pay-per-view broadcast.
