Jon 'Bones' Jones, Urijah Faber: 7 MMA Stars with Major Crossover Appeal

From televised cards on Fox to the Kevin James vehicle Here Comes the Boom, MMA and the UFC are slowly slouching towards the mainstream.   Once considered too taboo for anything but bachelor party PPV entertainment, the sport and its fighters are now on their way to becoming household names.

And while most grapplers work their craft in relative obscurity, we've spotted a handful who are ready to make the leap into primetime and beyond.

Today's gallery features MMA fighters with immediate crossover appeal.  From current Light Heavyweight Champion Jon 'Bones' Jones to the California cool of Urijah Faber, these are stars who could move deftly between the Octagon and Madison Avenue with ease.   Don't be surprised to see them pitching iPhones or toting an AK in Expendables 4 in the near future.
