Pros react to Jon Jones’ DWI arrest - ‘The world’s still perfectly normal’

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, was arrested early Thursday (March 26, 2020) in his hometown of Albuquerque, N.M., for allegedly Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), negligent use of a firearm, and possession of an open container.

For those keeping count, this is now the second such charge on Jones is facing, first getting busted after wrecking his Bentley into a light pole in 2012 in New York. In addition, “Bones” turned himself in to authorities after a hit-and-run accident in “The Duke City” back in 2015.

Naturally, the mixed martial arts (MMA) world had a thing or three to say about Jones’ latest legal dust up, and took to social media to vent.

As of this writing, UFC officials have yet to release a statement.

This is just the latest dark entry in Jones’ tumultuous reign as UFC champion, which has seen him on the wrong side of the law numerous times. Just a few months ago, Jones was hit with a misdemeanor battery charge after he was accused of getting physical with a waitress at a strip club.

As always, keep it tuned to for more on this developing story.
