Michael Bisping Weighs-In on Jon Jones’ Most Recent Legal Issues
By FCF Staff
Jon Jones is scheduled to rematch Daniel Cormier on April 23rd, in an highly anticipated fight, but the former champ has been making headlines this week due to other reasons.
Earlier in the week, it was reported that Jones was arrested for violating his probation, after being cited on several traffic citations. Video of his argument with the responding police officer has since gone viral. The Albuquerque fighter was stripped of the UFC’s 205 title last year, after Jones was charged in connection to a hit-and-run incident.
On the latest “UFC Tonight” Jones’ latest issues were a subject of conversation, and here is some of what Michael Bisping had to say (quote via FOX Sports press release):
“Jones has a history of getting into trouble with the law almost always behind the wheel. Stick to the laws. If you do get pulled over, don’t speak to the officer like that. That’s not going to help anything. He’s got a lot of negative attention on him and he’s feeling somewhat victimized. I have sympathy for him. I don’t think he’s a bad person, he just makes a catalog of bad errors time and time again.”
Cormier – Jones II is scheduled to headline UFC 197, which will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
