UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon “Bones” Jones has joined the front lines of the protest movement.
Disturbed by the looting happening by some of the interlopers and opportunists, the champ took to the streets of Albuquerque on Sunday.
There he confronted vandals face-to-face and he is not playing. The last person you want to anger is a current UFC champion, let alone the man considered the GOAT of the sport.
Jones confronted two masked people demanding that they hand over their spray cans immediately. Once they realized who it was, let alone his imposing 6’4 frame, they handed the cans right over.
Can Someone Say Submission?
Following the confrontation, “Bones” went to social media to vent and explain.
“Is this shit even about George Floyd anymore,” Jones wrote. “Why the f*ck are you punk-ass teenagers destroying our cities!??”
“As a young black man trust me I’m frustrated as well but this is not the way, we are starting to make a bad situation worse.”
“If you really got love for your city (505), protect your sh*t. All you old heads need to speak up, call your young family members and tell them to come home tonight.”
Currently, Jones is beefing with UFC president Dana White over his want to move to heavyweight for a super fight with Francis Ngannou. However, White claims that Jones wants too much money and Jones claims he never threw out a number.
For now, the move to heavyweight in the UFC is off and Jones has threatened to relinquish his title and defect from the UFC.
