UFC Champ Jon Jones

My Brother's PLAYING

In the Super Bowl!

UFC wrecking machine Jon Jones isn't the only professional athlete in his family -- in fact, his older brother is a stud in the NFL ... and will be starting in the SUPER BOWL!!!

Jones -- the reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion -- was out in New York yesterday when we asked about his older bro Arthur Jones -- the starting defensive end for the Baltimore Ravens.

"My brother's in the Super Bowl," Jon exclaimed ... "It's crazy man ... it's unbelievable."

When asked how his bro is preparing for the big game, Jon told us, "He's focused ... relaxing with his family, staying hungry ... studying the guy he's going up against."

Jon -- who recently signed a blockbuster sponsorship deal with Nike -- also broke some news for all you shoe freaks out there ... telling us he might have his own sneaker coming out in the near future.

Almost as exciting as having your brother playing in the Super Bowl ... right?

FYI...using the word stud when talking about the prowess of a black man is racially tinged.

TMZ missed a big part of this story! Even if his team lost he still would have a brother in the Super Bowl! He has 2 brothers in the NFL one on the Pats and one on the Ravens

Shows you TMZ doesn't follow sports AT ALL because if they did they would have already known his one brother is on the Ravens and his other brother was a rookie with the Patriots this year, both teams played each other last week so either way one of his brothers were going to the Super Bowl.
