The UFC has issued a formal statement regarding Jon Jones pleading guilty to a 4th degree felony related to his hit and run car accident from April of this year.
“The UFC organization is aware that Jon Jones reached a plea agreement with authorities in Albuquerque, New Mexico this morning stemming from charges associated with a motor vehicle accident earlier this year,” UFC officials said. “As a result, UFC, through Las Vegas-based law firm Campbell & Williams, will thoroughly review the agreement before discussing Jones’ possible reinstatement to return to competition.”
The judge has granted Jones a conditional discharge, but will receive no jail time or any fines. He will have supervised probation for up to 18 months.
