    I think Jon Jones would be really good at basketball.

    GSP could be successful as a wrestler. Jose Aldo could probably be a world class soccer player.

    Who else?

    To be fair he lost control of the ball and didn’t get a running start. I’m fairly positive JJ can dunk a basketball with ease. I’m 6’5 and can dunk with basically no natural athleticism.

    He should be able to, he has a gigantic wingspan and is around 6'4". If he can't dunk with a running start he must have a truly horrific vertical.

    we talking pro sports?
    sadly none, that's why they're in the UFC.

    I'm sure many if most if they wanted.

    It’s just a silly blooper video and a meaningless debate to begin with. Jones is capable of dunking though, trust me.
