And you can imagine how that all went.

Jones stood back and landed with a kick to the thigh region of Dean. After Dean got back to his stance, he got in the face of “Bones” and yelled, “harder” to the fighter.

Without thinking, Jones landed another kick that nearly took Dean completely to the ground. He immediately grabbed his leg and embraced with Jones.

On Instagram, Dean showed off the battle wound. He went to a local hospital and left on crutches. His thigh had completely swelled and was various colors.

Among the 126,000-plus likes the video has received was one from Jones.
