Former long-time light heavyweight champion, and pound-for-pound king Jon “Bones” Jones is undoubtedly one of the best fighters of all-time, if not the best period. However, his career has been slightly hindered by issues outside of the cage.
Just in the last year, Jones tested positive for cocaine metabolites in January, and was arrested on felony hit-and-run charges last April in New Mexico. After being arrested, Jones was stripped of his title, pulled from his scheduled UFC 187 fight with Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, and suspended indefinitely.
Potentially facing jail time, Jones has remained out of the media over the last few months, with his fighting future unclear. However, the former champion received great news last week when he walked out of a New Mexico court room with no jail time, but rather a probation sentence, and community service requirements.
He has now been reinstated by the UFC and all signs are pointing to a massive return for the pound-for-pound best sometime soon. That being said, let’s take a look back at the top five Jon Jones fights.
