Jon Jones says that his now-former fiancee has finalized the end of their relationship.
Jon Jones is back in the headlines again, and he took to Twitter on Feb. 23 to state that he and Jessie Moses, Jones’s former fiancee, are officially split. Jones deleted the tweet not long after.
This comes just a day after the Las Vegas Review-Journal released bodycam footage of the former UFC light heavyweight champion’s arrest from September 2021. Jones had been charged with domestic violence and tampering with a vehicle.
That arrest came in Las Vegas just mere hours after Jones had been inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame for his legendary UFC 165 clash with Alexander Gustafsson.
Jon Jones tweets about end of a relationship, Colby Covington chimes in with a dark diss
Jones’s now-deleted tweet left a mixed reaction, with some praising Moses’s leave, while others wished Jones the best and prays he gets the help he needs.
Colby Covington, who competes against Jorge Masvidal in the upcoming UFC 273 main event, fired off a shot in pretty dark, yet savage nature.
The domestic violence charge against Jones was dropped in December, and he pled no-contest to the property damage charge. Jones was ordered to pay $750 in restitution and attend anger management classes, while also staying out of trouble.
Jones, who has a history with law great in length, had previously denied hitting Moses. The Review-Journal noted that a security guard at Caesars Palace noticed Moses had a bloody lip and blood on her clothing.
In the time following the September arrest, Jones posted photos with Moses that seemed to indicate the pair had patched things up.
The bodycam footage showed Jones acting belligerent with the officers on the scene, repeatedly referring to one as “Officer Nerd” and accused the officers of racial profiling while throwing racial slurs at the officers — both white and black.
The footage also showed Jones headbutting the hood of the police SUV, which was left with a decent-sized dent and chipped paint.
It has been two years since Jones has competed inside the Octagon, last fighting Dominick Reyes in a light heavyweight championship main event at UFC 247. He’s since been away due to issues with UFC brass and preparing a move to heavyweight.
