“Jackass” star Steve-O is no stranger to putting his body through abuse. And in comparison to what he’s done, getting tossed around by some UFC champion caliber fighters seems like a walk in the park.
That’s likely why he seemed to take so much joy out of mixing it up on the mats with UFC light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones and former women’s bantamweight champ Holly Holm today at Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque, N.M.
Steve-O stopped by the gym and got manhandled on the mats by Jones (26-1 MMA, 20-1 UFC) and Holm (13-5 MMA, 6-5 UFC), and did it all with a massive smile on his face.
Watch the footage of the separate exchanges below (via Instagram):
Steve-O fancies himself to be a massive MMA fan, as he detailed during a January interview with MMA Junkie that can be seen above. He also has his own podcast where he’s had UFC president Dana White on as a guest along with several notable fighters.
