Planking, which is also called the Lying Down Game, is a new fad whereby people lie face down in unusual places.  A lot of fighters appear to be planking in the cage, but that's usually a result of getting KTFO.  Jon Jones, however, as you can see in the above pic, really does plank, high atop a pair of heavy bags.

Lyoto Machida, who is scheduled to take on Jones at UFC 140, will be doing his best to plank Jonny Bones in their fight.  But he needs to be careful lest he gets planked himself.

Here's a few pics of real planking, MMA-style, in action:
