Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was ticketed by a Bernalillo County Sheriff's Deputy back on Jan. 31, 2016, after "Bones" failed to provide proof of his driver's license, registration, and insurance.

More on that drama here.

Jones, who is on probation for last year's hit-and-run in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is expected to receive a small fine and three days of community service for the infraction. That won't be finalized until he (eventually) shows up in court, but today's appearance has been postponed until March, according to MMA Junkie.

Jones would appreciate it if you didn't talk about it.

Instead, the ex-champ wants the mixed martial arts (MMA) community to concentrate on his UFC 197 pay-per-view (PPV) title fight against Daniel Cormier, taking place on April 23, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. That's where the new-and-improved "Bones" fights the new-and-improved "DC."
