Full Biography of Actor Nathan Jones
Nathan Jones is an Australian actor, powerlifting champion, strongman, and professional wrestler. Jones has held the WWA World Heavyweight Championship once during his stint in World Wrestling All-Stars.
Before his career as a wrestler, Jones was sentenced to 16 years in 1987 at the age of 18 to Boggo Road Gaol for eight armed robberies between 1985–1987, two of which occurred in Tasmania. During the robberies, he became one of Australia\'s most wanted and ended up serving seven years in a maximum-security prison, in 1994 Jones was given one year work release, before being discharged at the age of 25. While in prison, he was introduced to the sport of powerlifting. Within a short space of time, he became the National Powerlifting Champion of Australia.
Upon his release, Jones also began competing in strongman contests and during this time, he was dubbed \"The Megaman\" for his imposing physique, 208 cm (6’ 10\") tall and 159 kg (355 pounds/25 stone). As the reigning Australia\'s Strongest Man, he entered the World Strength Championship at Callander, Scotland on 29–30 July 1995. He took first place, topping a field that included 1993 World\'s Strongest Man Gary Taylor. The following weekend, he competed in the World Muscle Power Classic held at Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. That contest was won by Magnús Ver Magnússon, with Nathan finishing fifth in a field of twelve competitors.
Jones next took part in the 1995 World\'s Strongest Man contest. After quickly defeating Phil Martin twice in the arm wrestling event in the qualifying heat, Jones was then matched against Magnus Samuelsson, who had been Europe\'s arm wrestling champion for several years and who would become the World\'s Strongest Man in 1998. Samuelsson won the first round. In the second round Jones refused to go down and pulled with his opposite arm, twisting his body. This resulted in breaking the arm he was using to wrestle, and he subsequently was out of the competition. Jones returned to Strongman competition in 1996 winning the World Strongman Challenge, and placed third in a World\'s Strongest Man qualifying heat behind Magnús Ver Magnússon and Jorma Ojanaho.
He also participated in a mixed martial arts match at KRS-Pride\'s debut event Pride 1 in October 1997, submitting to Japanese professional wrestler and former sumo wrestler Koji Kitao in his only match.
