WATCH: UFC star Jon Jones has managed to find a loophole to drive recklessly
Jon Jones must have given his driver a night off following UFC 197.
Jones and vehicles have been a match made in hell for a while now. The former light heavyweight champion had his title revoked and was suspended by the UFC for his involvement in a hit-and-run in which a pregnant woman broke her arm and as he was preparing for his highly anticipated UFC return, he was pulled over for suspected drag racing.
However, it appeared as though he finally took the necessary precautions to ensure that the most frustrating hurdle of his career would never become an issue again in the build up to UFC 197. Jones's coach Greg Jackson revealed on the MMA Hour that his fighter had hired a full time driver so that he could focus solely on fighting.
"He's got a driver now so everything should be fine. I just want him to focus on fighting, that's important. The rest of the circus, he should not be distracted by. He's a warrior, he needs to focus on that."
UFC 197 has come and gone, he defeated Ovince Saint Preux via unanimous to win the interim light heavyweight strap and what's also noteworthy is that he hasn't had any more brushes with the law over traffic violations.
However, Jones uploaded a video of himself behind the wheel and driving erratically around the Vegas strip. Admittedly, the steering wheel was attached to a mobility scooter, but still, has he not learned his lesson?
