Here's J.J. Wattexplaining why he could never be a UFC fighter -- he's got delicate legs.
"You ever take a razor scooter to the ankle? That puts me out for 3 days! So, I'm not looking to take anybody's shin to my shin."
But, he's a huge UFC fan -- and sat ringside at the last Jon Jones fight in February -- which led to an interesting conversation.
More athletic brothers -- The Watts or the Joneses?!?
Think about it ...
J.J. Watt, T.J. Watt and Derek Watt -- 3 NFL players including 2 Pro Bowlers and one of the most dominant defensive players EVER!
Jon Jones, Chandler Jones, Arthur Jones -- 2 NFL players including a Super Bowl champ (Arthur), a possible future Hall of Famer (Chandler) and the G.O.A.T of MMA (Jon).
We asked J.J. for his take -- and got a pretty solid response.
"That's a great question," Watt said ... "I can tell you that I don't know if any of my brothers and I are taking a shin kick to the ribs."
"I don't know if we're volunteering for that anytime soon, so they can have that title if they want."
But, Watt explained why he's got a bond with the Jones family -- something that started at UFC 247.
"I sat with Chandler so we have a comradery a little bit between the families. To me, obviously being a part of one, it's such a cool thing when brothers get to share that experience -- us in the same league, Chandler and Jon in different leagues."
