Jon Jones was also recently arrested in Las Vegas on domestic violence charges which shocked the MMA world. Chael Sonnen commented on Jon Jones’ arrest on his YouTube channel as well where he said the following:
“So Jon [Jones] pops in to the Hall of Fame. Gets put into the Hall of Fame for almost losing a fight to Alexander Gustafsson, and when Jon was there, he was flexing and he was showing – I gotta tell you, he looked great. Jon looked great. I could see muscles on him that I haven’t seen before… He looked really great,” Chael Sonnen said.
“X amount of time later, Jon gets arrested for domestic dispute – I believe abuse was the word – but domestic dispute, that means it’s family, and something with a car… I largely had a lot of positives from the Hall of Fame [ceremony]. Only Jon can go from the Hall of Fame to the Hall of Shame in fifteen minutes, but here we are.”
