Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones has stated that his life story is far from being over and he is ready and motivated for his much-awaited heavyweight debut. Jon Jones and controversies have always been going hand in hand. In the September of 2021, Jones was included in the HALL OF FAME for his legendary fight against Alexander Gustafsson. But on the same night, he was arrested for having a physical fight with his fiancee. Jon was charged with misdemeanour battery domestic violence and felony tampering with a vehicle. Recently the court dropped all the charges on him.
Just a few days back the video of Jon Jones getting arrested was out. The video was of his arrest in September 2021. The Las Vegas Review Journal obtained police bodycam footage of Jones’ arrest where he headbutted a police car (at the 3:09 mark) and reportedly left a “medium-size dent” and chipped the paint. During the arrest, Jones is heard calling one of the officers a “nerd” and asking “A black man can’t drink?” as he accused the officers of racial profiling.
Jon Jones also revealed recently that his Fiance has left him.
“My fiancé left me about two months ago, today she finalized that she won’t be coming back,” the deleted tweet from Jones read, “If you are a Jon Jones hater, have a toast, I feel like shit.” [H/T MMAMania.com]
