🥊 Heavyweight Jabs vs. Hoops Height: Jon Jones & Zach Edey’s Epic ESPYs After-Party Showdown 🏀
The ESPYs after-party turned into a surprise shadow-boxing showdown between Jon Jones, UFC’s best heavyweight, and Purdue’s 7-foot-4 hoops star, Zach Edey. The pair traded friendly jabs and snaps under the glitz of West Hollywood, bringing some unexpected entertainment to the partygoers. 🎉😄
What happens when a star from the octagon 🥊 and a titan from the basketball court 🏀 meet up at an after-party? Apparently, they duke it out — all in good fun, of course.
At the epic after-party of the ESPY awards, held at Pendry West Hollywood, partygoers were treated to a lighthearted match-up between Jon Jones, UFC’s legendary heavyweight, and Zach Edey, the towering 7-foot-4 star of Purdue’s basketball team. Edey decided to test his reach against Jones’ in a friendly shadow-boxing match, resulting in a unique blend of boxing jabs and towering hoops height. 🥊🏀
As camera flashes lit up the night, the two traded friendly jabs, much to the delight of the onlookers. But before you worry about the safety of our beloved athletes, take a deep breath — it was all in jest. Indeed, it seems Edey is as wise off the court as he is tall on it, knowing better than to seriously challenge a UFC heavyweight to a fistfight. 🧠🤣
After the impromptu boxing match, Jones and Edey smiled for the cameras, proving their friendly bout was all part of the after-party fun. They then continued to enjoy the night, partying alongside other celebs, including Damar Hamlin, Jamal Murray, Braxton Berrios, and ESPN personalities Chris Berman and Hannah Storm. 🎉📸
Now, that’s what we call an epic after-party. But it does leave us with some food for thought 🤔 — should more sports crossover fun like this be a norm at such events? Imagine the possibilities: Tennis stars shooting hoops, soccer players throwing footballs, or swimmers trying a hand at badminton?
And as we roll the credits on this party, we can’t help but ask: If there was an actual match between these two – no holds barred – who would you bet on? Jon Jones with his lethal punches, or Zach Edey with his towering height and long reach? 🥊🏀
