UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones said he worked with police officers and local residents in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to prevent looting in the city.
In a video obtained by TMZ Sports, Jones said he "called upon some of the men of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and quite a few showed up."
Jones also posted images and videos on Twitter:
TMZ noted that Jones also led a prayer circle with members of the Albuquerque Police Department.
Per Elise Kaplan, Jessica Dyer and Pilar Martinez of the Albuquerque Journal, two men were arrested for unlawful assembly and obstructing or evading the police late Monday.
Jim Harvey, executive director of the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, said he didn't believe people who attended a candlelight vigil earlier in the day to honor the memory of George Floyd were involved in the incident.
Jones posted a video to his Instagram (note: contains language NSFW) on Sunday in which he took two cans of spray paint away from two people.
"Is this s--t even about George Floyd anymore?!? Why the f--k are you punk ass teenagers destroying our cities," he wrote.
Jones, who is originally from New York, has lived and trained in Albuquerque throughout his mixed martial arts career.
