Jon Jones is currently one of the best fighters in the history of the MMA world and has had 14 successful title defences and cemented his legacy as one of the best ever. Jon Jones’ interesting message to Fedor previously leaked as well.
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. Dr. David Abbasi recently spoke about Jon Jones ‘brain trauma’ comments and how it may affect his career.
“Jon Jones has to be very careful of the language that he uses anytime he’s talking about brain health or brain trauma. We’re very sensitive to that, at least from a medical standpoint… if we know that you have this known history of yourself stating that you have issues with brain trauma, you’re kinda getting in this gray zone where I don’t think anybody’s gonna want that liability. Certainly I wouldn’t want that liability, I don’t think a promotion like the UFC would like that liability… I think he has to be very careful with the language he’s using because it could ultimately disqualify him from further competing.”
