Video: Sad Jon Jones reacts to losing six-figure Nike deal on Instagram

New, comments

It appears that Jon Jones is taking devastating financial news in stride, posting a Vine from his Las Vegas, Nevada, hotel room shortly after the Light Heavyweight champion informed Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) that his unsanctioned brawl (watch it here) with Daniel Cormier at a UFC 178 promotional event cost him the most coveted sponsor in sports, Nike. NSAC was not impressed, fining "Bones" $50,000 and sentencing him to 40 hours of community service (more on that here). The good news is that his showdown with Cormier is unaffected, with the grudge match still on for UFC 182 in Jan. 2015 (more details here). And at least he's getting better at social media. Don't hate.
