Jon Jones Will Not Serve Jail Time For Domestic Battery Charge

Former UFC champion Jon Jones will not serve any jail time following his latest run-in with the police in Las Vegas.

Former UFC champion Jon Jones has accepted a plea deal.

Jones will not serve jail time in regards to a domestic battery charge filed against him earlier this year. ESPN reports that online court records were made available.

Jones instead pleaded nolo contendere to a lesser charge of misdemeanor destroying the property of another. He appeared Tuesday in a Las Vegas Justice Court. 

The incident happened in September during the UFC Hall of Fame event in Las Vegas. Jones was originally charged with felony tampering with a vehicle and misdemeanor domestic battery. 

This was just the latest in a growing number of run-ins with the law involving Jones. The fighter has also been suspended for using performance-enhancing drugs during his MMA career.

Jones, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, is expected to move up to the heavyweight division in 2022.
