Former UFC light heavyweight Jon Jones was pulled over this past Thursday and given five traffic citations, among them drag racing, exhibition driving, weaving, failing to properly display his license, and modifying his exhaust pipe, according to the Albuquerque (N.M.) Police Department.
Jones (21-1 MMA, 15-1 UFC) is scheduled to rematch champion Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 197, which takes place April 23 from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Video released by the police shows Jones in a verbal confrontation with the police officer that pulled him over near downtown Albuquerque at 11:46 p.m. During a pair of exchanges, the former UFC light heavyweight champ called the officer a “liar” and a “pig” and denied drag racing.
