Jon Jones blasts former MMA journalist who was recently found guilty of child pornography

Jon Jones

Former UFC light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones will return to the octagon at UFC 232 on December 29, where he will rematch Alexander Gustafsson for the promotions interim 205-pound title.

Bones” has not stepped foot inside the cage since defeating Daniel Cormier via third-round knockout in the main event of UFC 214 in July of 2017.

That victory was later overturned to a no-contest, this after it was revealed that Jon Jones had flunked one of his pre-fight drug tests.

Jones had tested positive for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid, and was thus staring down a potential four-year suspension from USADA.

However, after a lengthy investigation, USADA announced on September 18 that Jon Jones would be receiving a 15-month suspension from the retroactive date of July 28, 2017.

That news sparked former mixed martial arts journalist and long time critic of Jon Jones, Iain Kidd, to accuse “Bones” of snitching to USADA in order to receive a lighter sentence.

While those accusations of Jones “snitching” were never proven to be true, one thing that has recently been proven as fact is that Iain Kidd is actually a monster.

It was recently revealed that the former BloodyElbow writer, Kidd, had pled guilty to downloading and possessing indecent photos of children.

Kidd’s disgusting acts had been going on for nearly twelve years. This before a search warrant was eventually issued for his mothers residence, which resulted in police discovering 984 images and 496 videos of child pornography.

Iain Kidd and his friend Fillip Hannisdal were eventually sentenced to a Community Payback Order with supervision for three years as a direct alternative to custody. They were also handed a Restriction of Liberty Order, in which they will have to remain at home between the hours of 7pm and 7am for six months.

In addition, they were placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for three years and are not allowed unsupervised contact with children under the age of 16.

Jon Jones, who is the father to five daughters, did not take well to the news that his former critic is actually a child predator.

“Bones” took to his personal Twitter and Instagram pages with the following message regarding Iain Kidd.

“Bloody Elbow reporter and one of my biggest critics Iain Kidd receives only six months of probation for having over 1000 pictures and videos of Child Pornography. On top of this he lives in the Hillington part of Glasgow, Scotland NEXT TO 3 SCHOOLS! Take a look at his face ladies and gentlemen. Those are the eyes of a true Predator!” – Jon Jones

“One of my biggest critics bloody elbow reporter #IainKidd was just busted for having possession of over 1000 images and videos of #ChildPornography. As a father to only daughters, I absolutely hate people like this, and try not to hate anyone. Lucky he doesn’t live in my city.” – Jon Jones

Jones was not the only fighter to put the former MMA Journalist on blast.

Michael Chiesa also took to social media where he reacted to Kidd’s disgusting crimes.

“Iain Kidd what a scumbag you are. This guy condemns fighters through his journalism yet he was just found guilty of collecting and filming child pornography over a 12 year span including acts of bestiality. These are the worst types of people that exist today.” – Michael Chiesa
