It’s no secret that former UFC light heavyweight champion and former pound-for-pound king Jon “Bones” Jones has had issues with the law in the past, but it was reported earlier today that he had been busted driving without a license and without insurance.
Apparently the situation may have been blown out of proportion, as it appears as if Jones simply received a traffic ticket, something that will have no effect on his highly anticipated return against champion Daniel Cormier at April 23’s UFC 197.
The two squared off once before at January 2015’s UFC 182, with “Bones” scoring a convincing one-sided decision before he was later stripped of his title after being arrested on felony charges.
Despite his driving mishap not being too big of a deal, Jones doesn’t seem too pleased with the amount of hype and exposure it’s gotten, taking to both his official Instagram and Twitter accounts to voice his displeasure:
I’m interested to see how many “journalists” show up to the court room on Wednesday to report this career changing masterpiece.

Do you agree with the former divisional kingpin, or given his past, do events like these rightfully garner the attention?
