Ariel Helwani, today, interviewed the former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon “Bones”Jones. The bullet point version is that he got in a car accident, he fled the scene and was arrested for hit and run just a month before he was set to defend his title against Anthony “Rumble” Johnson. On September 29th, Jones had his day in court where he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to community service. In October, the UFC reinstated him.
This is one of the many steps that Jones will need to take in order to retain the belt. It’s no big secret that Helwani gave Jones an easy Q&A. Bottom line is that the UFC is a business that thrives of off the very popularity their stars provide. Clearly, the UFC would want everyone to see Jones as the “Golden Child” he once was. With a win against DC, he just might be golden again. What are your thoughts about the Jones interview?
