Jon Jones has repeatedly talked about deserving better pay for fighting the likes of UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou. The whole topic of UFC fighters deserving better pay has maintained steam throughout the months. However, it might have affected Jon Jones’ career in the UFC.
Jon Jones was also recently arrested in Las Vegas on domestic violence charges which shocked the MMA world. Claressa Shields recently spoke to MMA Junkie and shared her thoughts on Jon Jones’ recent arrest.
“I’m really just praying for Jonny Bones. I don’t know what happened, I wasn’t there, I’ve seen articles and as bad as they sound and everything – I’m not defending Jon at any point because I don’t know what happened but he’s never seemed aggressive to me and he’s trained with me and we’ve spent sessions together training and rolling. I just think everybody goes through their own stuff and it’s too bad for him that he’s a superstar, right? Because his problems are all over the TV and before you go to court, you’re already guilty. I just pray for Jon Jones, his family and his kids. He’s got good people around him who can tell him what to do,”
