Jon Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion who is widely regarded as the greatest mixed martial arts fighter of all-time, was arrested in Albuquerque, New Mexico, early Thursday according to a report by KOAT.com.

According to Albuquerque police records, Jones was stopped at 1:01 a.m. MDT on Central Ave SW. He was charged with aggravated DWI, negligent use of a firearm, no proof of insurance in the vehicle and possession of an open container.

MMA Fighting reported that Jones performed poorly on a field sobriety test and then tested at or above the legal limit. In New Mexico, the blood alcohol content limit is 0.08.

Officers responded to a report of gunshots. When they arrived, they found Jones in his car with the engine running. He reportedly denied knowledge of gunshots. The police report noted officers said Jones showed signs of intoxication, and admitted he had been driving earlier.

Yahoo Sports reached out to the UFC for comment, but there was no immediate response.

The incident is a latest in a long line that have marred Jones’ career. He pleaded guilty to DUI in 2012 and in 2015, pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident in Albuquerque. He was arrested on a charge of battery in Albuquerque last year.

Jones also was suspended from competition twice for failing anti-doping tests.

On March 19, 2011, he became the youngest champion in UFC history when he knocked out Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in the third round of a fight at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. He is 26-1 with one no contest, and the only loss on his record was a disqualification that many believe was an error made by the referee. His no-contest was originally a knockout victory over arch rival Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 on July 29, 2017. But it was changed to a no-contest after he failed an anti-doping test.

Jon understood what transpired on Dec. 28, 2019 and has accepted it's over. Sometimes you have to give credit where it's due.

Man... The UFC better give him more than a slap on the wrist this time. They won't cut him, but at least make him work his way up the rankings or something.

The ufc shouldn't punish him for shit this isn't part of the sport
The only action they oughtta be able to take is stripping him if he gets a prison sentence which I doubt but is possible cobsidering the pistol charge. I think in Cali your third dui is automatic jail but I'm not sure and idk about New Mexico
But if he does get stripped automatic title shot goes without saying ,unless he came back at heavyweight

:lol: I agree with this. We really should go all the way back to the start and give the belt back to Shogun considering Bones has failed more drug tests than any other fighter in UFC history. Then let whomever try to take the belt from Shogun. That cheating bitch has been dirty from the start, :poison: :radioactive: :pillred:

That already happened years ago.

Considering how many times he's caused cancelled fights and cards: No. I disagree. This is not a purely personal matter. He is poisoning the sport. Not because of his influence. But now fighters have to wait on him repeatedly after fuck ups. People that deserve to be considered great can't get the time of the day because he's unavailable. Would you say the same thing if he was scheduled to fight in the next month?

It's just like with Conor. He can be the biggest asshole on social networking ever. At the end of the day it's secondary to fighting. But when fights/cards get cancelled because of stupidity? Fuck that noise.
