UFC Champion ‘Bones Jones’ and Roy Hibbert Joke on Twitter

Though the Indiana Pacers defeated the Miami Heat on Wednesday night, center Roy Hibbert took an elbow to the face from LeBron James and fell to the floor in – what appeared to be – extreme pain. Trainers attended to Hibbert who remained under the basket before eventually receving help to the bench from the Pacers’ staff and his teammates. James was charged with an offensive flagrant foul.

Following the game, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones – a notable NBA fan - and Hibbert shared a comical conversation on Twitter.

It’s certainly nice to see that Hibbert has recovered from the scare and was able to joke about it after the game, while it is also entertaining to read a conversation of two respected athletes in their own sports crossing paths on social media.
