Jon Jones Delivers Brief Statement On His Twitter Account

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will have to answer for his actions on Saturday morning eventually.

For now, the rising star has sent out a brief message via Twitter.

Early Saturday morning, Jones crashed his car into a pole and was charged with suspicion of DUI. His management team has issued a statement, but “Bones” has yet to say anything publicly. The UFC has also remained quiet in regards to the matter for the most part.

Jones is currently scheduled to face Dan Henderson in his second title defense of the year at UFC 151 in September. Last month, Jones downed rival Rashad Evans via decision.
