Fighters and MMA Personalities React to Jon Jones Being Stripped of UFC Title Via Twitter

April 29, 2015

Following Tuesday evening’s announcement that UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones had been stripped of his title and suspended indefinitely due to repeated violations of the organization’s Code of Conduct Policy, fighters took to Twitter to react.

Jones was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident in Albuquerque on Sunday that resulted in injuries to a pregnant motorist. He fled the scene, but later turned himself into law enforcement on Monday after a felony warrant was issued for his arrest.

Jones was scheduled to defend his 205-pound title for a ninth time at UFC 187 on May 23 against top contender Anthony Johnson. Johnson now faces Daniel Cormier for the vacant belt at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
