UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is in legal trouble after being arrested this week in Albuquerque, N.M., this time on charges of aggravated DWI and negligent use of a firearm, among other things. The bodycam footage released Friday wasn’t easy to watch, either.
If you’ve paid attention to Jones’ career through the years, you know run-ins with the law have been a recurring issue for the man considered by many to be the greatest fighter of all time.
This latest transgression raises questions about Jones’ future – both personally and professionally. And you know what? You can bet on it.
The folks over at gambling site SportsBetting.ag have come up with these prop bets:
- Will Jon Jones be stripped of title belt before the end of 2020?
- Will Jon Jones be arrested again before the end of 2020?
- Will Jon Jones spend night in jail before the end of 2020?
- Will Jon Jones fight in UFC again before the end of 2020?
Interesting to note that the oddsmakers do not think Jones will get stripped nor do they think he’ll fight before the end of the year, which doesn’t bode well for what Thiago Santos would like to see happen.
At any rate, if you miss being able to bet on fights during this coronavirus lockdown period, here’s a chance to go nuts.
