Finally some positive news for Jon Jones. At the end of the ninth month, after being admitted to the UFC Hall of Fame, one of the greatest MMA fighters in history was arrested for illegal use of physical force against his fiancée, and he was charged with damaging someone else's vehicle.
The day before yesterday, "Bones" was acquitted of the most serious offense, the one in which he was suspected of violence against his fiancée and the mother of their three daughters. He did no dispute the damage to the vehicle in court, and that non-disputing is in fact part of a settlement acquitting him of the above-mentioned charges.
By the way, Jones' fiancée, just after the incident, said that Jones touched the back of her head, after which he pulled her by the hair, but did not hit her. She explained how he did it when she tried to leave the room.
Police then commented on the blood on her clothes and the blood on her lips, which seemed to them to be within a physical confrontation. She stated that she was not aware that anything had happened to her lips. Police added that there was blood on her chin, that her lips seemed swollen and that she looked scared to talk about Jones at all.
At the end of this week, Jones was ordered to stay away from additional troubles and is obliged to pay $ 750 to the victim of his offense. The UFC fighter will also have to undergo anger management counseling. It’s a fairly lenient sentence, but it doesn’t erase the fact that Jones has been convicted of something once again.
One of the greatest, but also one of the most problematic fighters ever, is getting into trouble year after year. In addition to the above-mentioned punishment, this time he suffered some more consequences.
Namely, Mike Winkeljohn decided to temporarily remove Jon Jones from JacksonWink Hall, but "Bones" decided that he would never return, and it seems that he found a home in the Fight Ready Gym in Arizona. After all, this case went well for the former light heavyweight champion and Jones can now continue to prepare for his heavyweight debut.
That performance is expected during 2022, and Jones, in his latest post via Instagram, informed fans how his transition to the heavyweight category is going. '' I said I’ll be the champion in 2022, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
I feel like I’m jumping up three weight classes, going from competing at 205 pounds to 265 pounds is no easy task." "Nothing great happened overnight, I’m patient and I’m working my ass off every day towards my goals. "
