He might be on the verge of surrendering his belt, but Jon Jones is a pretty bad ass fighter. He and Dana White are arguing over money so he could be done with UFC.

On Sunday night, civil unrest hit Albuquerque, N.M., which Jones calls home. In a video posted to his Instagram account, Jones is seen confronting vandals downtown. He demands spray cans from two men, who reluctantly oblige.


Last week after the Floyd incident went viral, Jones was among the first prominent professional athletes to express outrage over what was captured on video, calling for “nationwide policy change.” Jones made it clear Sunday, though, that he doesn’t support the chaos as the means of obtaining it.

“Is this sh*t even about George Floyd anymore?!?” he wrote in a caption with his Instagram video. “Why the f*ck are you punk ass teenagers destroying our cities!?? As a young black man trust me I’m frustrated as well but this is not the way, we are starting to make a bad situation worse. If you really got love for your city (505), protect your sh*t. All you old heads need to speak up, call your young family members and tell them to come home tonight.”

Well played  Bones. Well played.
