Jon Jones has become somewhat of a joke following the arrest for domestic violence late last year. This latest arrest may have had the least impact on Jones’ career but it may have had the biggest effect on his life behind the scenes.
Troubled UFC Hall of famer just had bodycam footage of his arrest for domestic violence released. Jones,34, was arrested by the LVMPD on charges of misdemeanor battery domestic violence and felony injuring and tampering with a vehicle.
Las Vegas Review Journal obtained and published the arrest video. The video showcases Jones’ erratic behavior during the arrest including the headbutting a police vehicle that added another charge to his resume.
Jones’ fiancé Jessie Moses told police that Jones put his hand on her but it was “not too physical”. This is in stark contrast to what the police observed – she reportedly had blood on her lip, a bump and blood all over her hoodie.
With Moses reluctant to press charges Jones was allowed to reach a plea deal with prosecutors. The domestic violence charge was dismissed, and he pled no contest to the misdemeanor charge of destruction of property.
But Moses wasn’t pleased with the public pressure this latest scandal put on her and opted to leave Jones after 17 years together.
Jones revealed: “My fiancé left me about two months ago, today she finalized that she won’t be coming back. If you are a Jon Jones hater, have a toast, I feel like s–t”

For a while it seemed like the couple had rekindled the relationship thanks to Jones’ new found sobriety. Former UFC Champion even storied a video of him and Moses kissing in a vehicle a day after the arrest. Perhaps in an attempt to nullify reports of Moses’ injuries in the media – or attempt some sort of damage control.
Jones captured the idyllic make out scene to John Legend’s Stay with you.
The couple has 3 daughters ranging in age from 9 to 14.
