Unless you've been living under a rock the past two days, you know all about the current shenanigans surrounding UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Just in case, here's a quick recap: Jones was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run on Sunday morning, fleeing the scene of a car accident after running a red light and striking a vehicle with a pregnant woman inside.
As if running away weren't bad enough, the women in the other vehicle suffered a broken arm. And so, just like that, Jones' misdemeanor became a felony. A warrant was issued for his arrest, and Jones turned himself in on Monday night according to Deadspin's. He was quickly released on $2,500 bail, as reported by the Bernalillo County Metro Detention Center (h/t MMA Junkie).
Now, all eyes turn toward the UFC. It issued a complete non-statement statement on Sunday, saying, essentially, that they aware of the situation. That just proves that they have Twitter like the rest of the world. We know that they are aware of the situation. The question is, what will they do?
Will they support him? Will we, as Dana White said in January after Jones tested positive for cocaine, understand when "the truth comes out"? What's next for the best fighter in the history of mixed martial arts?
