Jon Jones' probation violation arrest is a big deal. If convicted he will be a felon due to his previous guilty plea from the hit and run

After Jones was cited for a traffic violation and the subsequent police body cam footage was released, it has been all downhill for Jones. A month away from a title fight with Daniel Cormier at UFC 197, Jones is stumbling to his sobriety finish line. The higher powers at the UFC have to be worried about Jones napalming another pay per view event.
So here are five fighters that the UFC and Dana White should be texting right now just in case Jones screws up again before UFC 197.
5. Lyoto Machida
Machida moves up in weight and stars in the spring comedy Title Fight Crashers….(???)
4. Anthony Johnson
Mma is legit now!
