UFC 197 headline fight in jeopardy following Jones arrest

Following the news yesterday that Jon Jones was once again in trouble with the law, it seems that the UFC 197 main event is now in jeopardy following the former Champions arrest.

Jones was today arrested by the police in Albuquerque, New Mexico just five days after the incident. TMZ were first to report the arrest, which was caused by a violation of his probation.

The probation come following the hit-and-run in which a pregnant woman was injured last April and under the terms of the probation, Jones was forbidden from breaking any laws.

Jones is set to compete in the headline of UFC 197 which takes place on 23rd April and the UFC has reserved to make comments until further information is clarified.
