Former Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones Has Been Reinstated
Big news coming to the world of UFC: the UFC has officially reinstated former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Jon Jones was suspended indefinitely from the UFC and stripped of the UFC Light Heavweight Title in April 2015 after fleeing the scene of an accident; however, after pleading guilty to a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident, instead of jail time, Jon Jones was put on supervised probation and required to make 72 appearances at youth programs.
There’s no word as to when Jon Jones’ first fight back will be, but we’re sure it won’t be too long before fans see him back inside the Octagon.
Jon Jones updated his Facebook page expressing his gratitude to the fans and MMA community, which you can read below.
