Rob Gronkowski says he is teammate Chandler Jones' MMA trainer

Tuesday February 17th, 2015

Rob Gronkowski was in New York City over the weekend where TMZ inevitably caught up with him to discuss his latest exploits.

The cameraman asked the Patriots tight end if he ended up going out with the South Florida reporter he seemed to hit it off with in an interview last week, but Gronkowski said he was busy training teammate Chandler Jones for a potential MMA match against his brother Jon 'Bones' Jones.

Chandler Jones has said he would like to face off against his brother, who is the current UFC light heavyweight champion, in a one round charity match, if the Patriots will allow it, of course.

Gronkowski also adds that he would be open to a new type of competition himself, saying he would be willing to be on the popular Dancing With The Stars show.
