It looks like Nike is branching out a bit as far as which sports they’re prepping special releases for. Releasing tomorrow, April 19th, is this pair of the Nike Free Trainer 5.0 inspired by top-level MMA fighter Jon “Bones” Jones. The sneaker is a pretty muted black and red affair, featuring a “Bones” hit across the tongue. Will we see Nike throw further support behind the increasingly popular MMA scene (we’ve already seen Rampage in a Nike ad before)? Tell us if you’d like to see a new trainer silhouette specifically tuned for face-kicking in the comments below and remember that this Jon Jones Nike Free Trainer 5.0 will be in stores tomorrow.

saw this happening, He wore all Nike on Ultimate Fighter up to now. Funny because I think Sonnen was almost or was sponsored by Nike but after his steroid situation I think they cut ties (as they usually do with athletes who use performance enhancers). This is an awesome pick up for Nike because this dude is super humble and down to earth, until he gets in the ring with those razor like elbows. Hopefully Nike can come up with something creative for this guy as far as merchandise because im sure there marketing team will come through.
