UFC light heavyweight superstar, Jon Jones is his own worst enemy. Jones was arrested over the weekend for misdemeanor battery domestic violence and tampering with a vehicle after being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame for his fight against fellow light heavyweight legend Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165.
Jones has previously been arrested for a hit-and-run that left a pregnant woman injured and stranded. He was also previously arrested for a DUI. He was arrested in 2019 for an assault against a waitress. His latest arrest was in 2020 for aggravated DWI, negligent use of a firearm, possession of an open container and driving with no proof of insurance. For the love of God, stop the madness. This guy is a walking disaster and can’t keep it together.
Jon Jones will never be considered the GOAT because he’ll never live up to his potential due to the several stains on his career. These stains include arrests and USADA drug violations.
UFC President, Dana White, verbally smashed Jones and let the world know his feelings on Jones’ latest PR disaster.
When asked about his latest arrest, “This city is not good for Jon Jones…it’s like it’s not even shocking anymore. When we bring him here it’s almost expected. We can’t even get him in Las Vegas for less than 12 hours to induct him into the Hall of Fame. It’s a problem, you know? This guys got a lot demons man.”
“Is it really shocking anymore? It’s really not. It’s become not shocking. It’s almost like, ‘Uh oh, this guy is in Vegas, what’s gonna happen today?’ You want to hope that the guy is better and that won’t be the case, but he proves that every time he comes to this town that he can’t handle this place.”
Jon Jones needs to fire his entire team and stop surrounding himself with “yes men.” When everyone around you is telling you how great you are, it’s hard not to believe the hype and not drink your own Kool-Aid. Humility is a wonderful thing, but it seems as if Jones will never learn his lesson and people will always view him as a superstar that “could’ve been” if he just got out of his own way. DO BETTER!
