Prom night! Jon Jones surprises local teens, doesn’t run them over in the process (Video)

Hey, remember the 1980 classic “Prom Night” where that guy starts chopping up teenagers at the high school dance? Yeah, this is nothing like that, but I have to hit a specific word count, so just hang in there until we can slog through this non-story.

Turns out former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, can make headlines without running anyone over in his car. Just ask a bunch of Albuquerque teens who got a free dinner on “Bones,” as well as memories that will last a lifetime.

“It was an exciting prom story,” random teenager Elijah Davis said after Jones picked up the tab for their pre-prom chow. “I texted my family. Everyone was on their phones with their parents. It was pretty cool.”

Jones is trying to make his way back to mixed martial arts (MMA) but will first need to settle his differences with United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which is expected to discipline the embattled pound-for-pound great after last summer’s failed drug test.
