If reports are true, it is NOT looking good for Jon Jones.
The UFC Light Heavyweight Champion was apparently involved in a hit and run accident in New Mexico, running from the scene of a car crash which had multiple injuries.
It’s thought he was under the influence, hence the fleeing, and to make matters worse, cocaine was found in the vehicle.
If this is correct, it’s likely he will be pulled from the card of UFC 187 and won’t be fighting Anthony Johnson. Albuquerque police tweeted to say that they couldn’t confirm the situation as investigations are still ongoing.
We CANNOT confirm that Jon Jones was involved in a H&R traffic accident from this morning. The investigation is ongoing.

I hope it isn’t true, to be honest. I have really been looking forward to this fight for a while, especialy since the lads did a good job of pranking Dana White a few weeks ago.
