It wasn’t much, but UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones broke his silence late Saturday night following a difficult day for young star. Early Saturday morning police were called to investigate an accident in which Jones apparently drove his Bentley into a utility pole, causing plenty of damage. “Bones” was booked and sent to jail on a suspicion of DUI charge, being bailed out a few hours later by his mother.
While information continues to come in concerning just what happened, Jones took to his Twitter account to post a simple message.
“God is good,” was all Jones posted. The message came after plenty of pre-crash posts involving talk of gun purchases the champion had made after deciding to take up a new hobby.
Currently, Jones is scheduled to defend his title against Dan Henderson on September 1 at UFC 151 from Las Vegas. It remains to be seen if that match will still take place, or what the UFC will do – if anything – in response to the incident.
