Jon Jones To Throw Out First Pitch At San Diego Padres’ Game

UFC light heavyweight star Jon Jones will be a busy man this weekend as he gets ready for his main event showdown with Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC on Versus 2. Before Jones makes his way to the fight on Sunday, he’ll stop by Petco Park on Friday when he throws out the first pitch at the San Diego Padres game against the Florida Marlins.

The game takes place this Friday July 30 at 6:58pm PT, where Jones will toss out the ceremonial first pitch.

“I love San Diego and I’m excited to do the first pitch for the Padres,” Jones said. “I’m going to try to throw a strike for the fans on Friday, and then give them a knockout Sunday.”

There’s been no word if Jones will tell the crowd in San Diego to stay classy or not though.
