Dom Reyes Says Jon Jones News is “Almost Laughable”
Fighters and fans have already begun the roasting of Jon Jones for his recent latest stint with the law. By now, seeing Jon’s name in headlines for bad things seems second nature. In a way, it’s a repeated cycle. So when fans see the news, in the words of Nate Diaz, they’re not surprised. Just like fans, fighters like to get in on the action as well. And of course, Jon’s latest opponent, Dom Reyes, got in on the action stating that the Jones news is almost laughable.
Jon Jones has been arrested again. This time, the charges included aggravated Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), negligent use of a firearm, possession of an open container, and no proof of insurance. Police officers found a handgun beneath Jon’s seat, and a bottle of tequila behind the passenger seat.
