New, 185 comments

Ariel Helwani spent an hour with former UFC champion Jon Jones to discuss the turbulent few months in Jones’ life that included an arrest, suspension, and return to the UFC.

It has been a turbulent seven months for Jon Jones.

The former UFC light-heavyweight champion was involved in a hit-and-run car accident, was arrested and held on bail, got suspended by the UFC, and plead guily to a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident. In the end, he was dealt 18 months of supervised probation and was able to have his suspension lifted by the UFC.

After months of radio silence in terms of media interactions, Jones decided to break his silence in an hour-long stroll through Albuquerque with MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani.
