UFC fighters react to Jon Jones DWI arrest (Video)

Just about every mixed martial arts (MMA) fan who's come across the news of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion and UFC 151 headliner Jon Jones getting arrested for -- and eventually pleading guilty to -- driving while intoxicated (DWI), has had an opinion on it.

One way or the other.

Now, it's time for his peers to sound off. That includes former and current UFC Heavyweight Champions Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos as well as featherweight contender Chad Mendes, Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz and the recently dispatched Jason Miller.

Some of the reactions from the current crop of fighters ranges from the Hammer-esque "Pray!" (prayyyy) to "been there, done that." Mir was just glad to hear "Bones" was unhurt and "Cigano" was "sad." Mendes empathized for the little kids that looked up to Jones.

"Mayhem" said the good news is the worst thing that happened was the champ's Bentley got wrecked.
