Jon Jones is probably the most controversial guy in the whole UFC industry. He is always somehow ended up in a locker room where police looking at him. Out of the fight cage, Jones got so many problems and stuff going on. His misbehavior, aggressive character, and spoiled lifestyle always put him in danger.
The same thing happens again in Las Vegas where Jones attended a UFC Hall of Fame Ceremony. The news wasn’t public at that moment. It spread to the world recently. And let’s how MMA pros see it.
A couple of hours later of the UFC Hall of Fame Ceremony, Jones was arrested by the police. He is charged with domestic battery and damaging a vehicle. The battery charge is the minor one but damaging a vehicle is a felony crime. The damage he cost to the vehicle is worth 5000 dollars. The bail is set for 8000 dollars and a court appearance on October 26.
His training institution chose to remain silent on that matter. And nothing else we heard from Jones lawyers. Some even raise the question that if he even has a lawyer or not.
UFC President Dana White says, “It’s like it’s not even shocking anymore. When we bring him here, it’s almost expected. Can’t even get him into Las Vegas for less than 12 hours to induct him into the Hall of Fame. It’s a problem. This guy’s got a lot of demons, man – a lot of demons.” White continues his talking, “Is it really shocking anymore? It’s really not. It’s become not shocking. It’s almost become, ‘Uh oh, he’s in Vegas again. What’s going to happen today?’ You want to hope the guy is better, and that won’t be the case, but he proves every time he comes to this town that he can’t handle this place.”
