Video: Spend an hour with Jon Jones talking hit-and-run, losing his UFC title, and Daniel Cormier

New, 50 comments

Ever wonder what a day in the life of Jon Jones is like?

Wonder no more as the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion gives mixed martial arts (MMA) fans an inside look at his daily routine, which thanks to court-ordered community service, includes talking to kids about life in the fast lane.

A life that also produced the highest of highs and lowest of lows. "Bones" is widely-considered the greatest MMA fighter of our generation -- and perhaps ever -- though his exploits outside the cage do not mirror his professional success. That said, this is not a unique circumstance exclusive to Jones.

Young, wealthy athletes often find themselves in all sorts of trouble.

For Jones, his run-in with the law left him stripped of his 205-pound title and relegated to spectator while longtime rival Daniel Cormier took over the top spot in their division. Watch "Bones" discuss that -- and so much more -- in the video above.
