Two weeks in the past, Jon Jones was arrested but once more, this time on charges of battery domestic violence. Within the weeks which have adopted, more details surrounding the arrest have come out, painting a disturbing picture whereby Jones’ fiancée, Jessie Moses, was discovered bleeding “from her nostril/mouth” and admitted that Jones has gotten “somewhat bit” bodily together with her, although she denied that Jones hit her. It’s the most recent in an extended record of run-ins with the legislation for Jones, who has been arrested a number of occasions one fees of driving beneath the affect in addition to different issues, and many in the MMA community have seemingly had enough, together with a notable determine who would name herself Jones’ pal.
Miesha Tate is a pioneer of MMA and the previous UFC ladies’s bantamweight champion, and talking to MMA Mania, Tate mentioned that’s it’s long gone time for Jones to take duty for his actions.
“It’s so disheartening,” Tate mentioned. “Jon Jones, we can provide him all of the compliments for his accolades and he deserves that, however there are only a lot of unforgivable issues that he’s finished all through the historical past of his profession. At the least within the limelight that we all know of. It’s actually powerful to separate, I believe it’s getting harder for followers to separate the 2. To simply be a fan of him as a fighter and never acknowledge the opposite issues he does as a human being that sort of tarnish that.
“Who ought to be answerable for Jon Jones? Jon Jones ought to be answerable for Jon Jones. There’s no person else that we ought to be taking a look at. It’s not his fiancee’s fault, it’s not his mother and father’ fault at this level. He’s a grown-ass man. He’s a grown-ass man and he must be accountable.”
Following his launch on bail, Jones posted to Instagram, not directly addressing the charges against him but stating that “I will leave alcohol in my past forever.” It’s an analogous message Jones to the one Jones posted final 12 months when he was arrested for DWI where he said he had “an unhealthy relationship with alcohol.”
Given Jones’ continued issues, many have instructed that it’s excessive time Jones face precise repercussions for his transgressions, notably from the UFC. Although the UFC stripped Jones of his title again in 2015, he was reinstated to the lively UFC roster simply 5 months later, which many really feel was nothing greater than a slap on the wrist to Jones. However Tate says that it doesn’t matter what Dana White does, that is Jones’ downside to resolve.
“I want to take into account myself an acquaintance-slash-friend [of his]. I don’t want something sick in the direction of Jon Jones,” Tate mentioned. “I do know I’ve pissed him off earlier than with my feedback, but when I had any recommendation for the person, from the underside of my coronary heart, it will be to avoid these issues that trigger you that potential fallout. Whether or not that be alcohol, whether or not or not it’s sure sorts of medication, I don’t know. If it’s an environment [or] if it’s Las Vegas. If you might want to stroll out of the room once you’re upset and take an hour earlier than you come again and speak to your accomplice. I don’t know what his Kryptonites are, however I believe he needs to be sturdy sufficient and have the psychological fortitude to acknowledge these and keep the hell away from him. That’s how he’s going to maintain himself out of bother.
“No person can try this however him. Dana White can not get a type of little kiddy leashes and observe him round all day lengthy. It’s not Dana White’s fault. You possibly can’t try this. He has to acknowledge what his issues are, Kryptonites are and steer clear. I hope he can try this however I gained’t be one holding my breath as a result of you may’t even be stunned by it anymore.”
