UFC SUPERSTAR FADING FAST AMIDST LEGAL TROUBLES
Once thought of as unbeatable, untouchable and possibly on track to become the greatest ever in the Octagon, Jon Jones finds himself facing a possible 3-year imprisonment due to his latest blunder of a hit-and-run incident that resulted in a 3-car collision, which took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico on April 26th. The collision involved a pregnant lady named Vanessa Sonnenburg, who suffered a fractured arm. There was also a witness at the sight of the accident that had urged the MMA fighter not to leave the scene, but was unsuccessful, which ultimately led to Jones being arrested a few days later. Several months before in January, it was made public that Jones had tested positive for cocaine use prior to his mega-match with the very outspoken and current Light Heavyweight UFC Champion Daniel Cormier.
Apparently, the DA is ready to proceed the hit-and-run case to the grand jury in light of evidence involving the victim's medical records and reports from the Albuquerque Police Department that could possibly result in a 3-year sentencing for the hit-and-run felony charge, which would would be a devastating blow to a once extremely promising MMA career of the former UFC champ. At one point, not only was he unquestionably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the game, but a also a hero outside the Octagon from tracking down car thieves hours before a championship bout to providing hotel accommodations for a lady and her child that was abandoned by her boyfriend in South Beach. How quickly his star has fallen from grace and one can only hope that he gets back on the right track to restore both his personal and professional life.
