  • “Bones” insist that he didn’t threaten to kill anybody

Jon Jones has shed light on the recent allegations against him once again.

“Bones” has spoken

Jones recently made headlines for allegedly assaulting an anti-doping agent that came over to his house for drug testing. Reports then surfaced claiming that he had been arrested for the incident.

However, the reigning UFC heavyweight champ vehemently denies these accusations. In a statement on social media, “Bones” insisted that there is no truth to the “false reports” now swirling on the internet.

“Hello everyone, I wanted to address some misinformation that has been circulating this morning,” Jones wrote on X. “I woke up to false reports that I had been arrested. I have not been arrested. In fact, I am currently in Texas with my daughters at a volleyball tournament. I must admit, it’s disappointing to have to clarify these things again, but I understand that I may be an easy target given some of my past issues.”

“It’s important to set the record straight and make sure the truth is told. I was recently visited by testers while I was celebrating a birthday and taking a nap. Upon waking up, I was caught off guard by the unprofessionalism and protocol by one of the testers which caused frustration leading me to use some profanity I regret.”

“However, I want to emphasize that at no point did I threaten, get in anyone’s face, raise my voice to anyone, or engage in any form of assault. It’s unfortunate that false news has been spread without proper fact-checking. I want to assure you that I will vigorously defend myself against these baseless accusations. The truth is, the incident simply did not occur.”

The case could still go either way

The anti-doping agent who reported the incident to Albuquerque police was identified as DFSI agent Crystal Martinez. She alleged that Jones threatened to “kill” her and grabbed her phone while in the middle of performing the standard drug testing.

If proven guilty of all the accusations, “Bones” would be facing assault charges and could be reprimanded for violating “section 2.5.1 of the UFC’s Anti-Doping policy,” which states, “Intentionally interfering of attempting to interfere with a Doping Control official.”

As of now, Jones appears to be free and the UFC has yet to take any action on his situation.
