Filed under: Featured Videos , News , UFC , Videos LAS VEGAS – Inside the octagon, UFC interim light heavyweight champion Jon Jones rarely has a misstep. Outside the cage, however, his career has been marked by several legal run-ins and other public relations setbacks. Jones (22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC) had his most serious out-of-competition issue in April 2015 when he was involved in a hit-and-run incident. Jones was sentenced to 18 months of supervised probation and the UFC stripped him of his championship. That the hit-and-run came on the heels of a January 2015 announcement he had failed a drug test due to the presence of cocaine metabolites only deepened the public questioning of Jones’ behavior.
