While Thompson scored $48,000 in pay, as well as a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus, for his efforts, Hendricks topped him with a $100,000 payday in defeat.

Jon Jones Will Not Face Formal Probation Violation Due to Traffic Incident

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will be back before the court in Albuquerque, N.M., this week after being cited for driving without a license, no proof of registration, and no proof of insurance. He will not, however, face a formal probation violation.

Jones was stopped on Jan. 31 and received the citations, but a representative of his Public Relations firm, EAG Sports, told MMAJunkie.com on Monday that he had been pulled over for speeding and was fully licensed and insured.

RELATED  Jon Jones Due Back in Court, Probation Could Be At Risk

“He will be in traffic court on Wednesday like everyone else that gets a ticket. He is fully licensed and insured,” EAG Sports CEO Denise White said.

Jon JonesAlthough Jones could face revocation of his probation for any violation of the law, Kayla Anderson, Public Information Officer for the Second Judicial District Attorney’s Office in New Mexico, told MMAWeekly.com on Monday afternoon that wasn’t going to happen.

“Our understanding (at the DA’s office) is that this (Jones’ traffic violations) will be dealt with by a sanction at the probation level, and we will not be filing a formal probation violation.”

That’s likely good news for Jones and the UFC, as Jones is scheduled to challenge current champion Daniel Cormier for the light heavyweight title in the UFC 197 main event on April 23 in Las Vegas.

  • I have a hunch this guy realized awhile ago that he bit off more than he can chew. The problem is he’s committed now and it would look terrible for him to back out after the UFC has made such a big deal promoting him and trainers have spent so much time working with him.

    This is why you start out doing small time fights in the little organizations. Punk used his fame to leapfrog right into the big time. Now he’ll get to fall on his face in front of a huge audience instead of a couple thousand people.

    • This is a very good thing because he will exile himself to Japan to NJPW and we will never see him again, I never liked that guy anyways, he was too small for pro wrestling. Idiot realizes that its real now and that they are not giving him a can to fight but someone who is legit and been training MMA for a couple of years, not a few muay thai and BJJ class but full time. Punk is never gonna make is MMA debut it was all a fluke, they will set a date for the fight then he will pull out due to a fake injury and then slowly disappear and Dana White will make fun of him. Should have gone to Bellator or king of the cage.

      • you do realize, that by the time of the fight, forgetting his bit-part training in BJJ over the years, he’ll have been training with one of the best teams, with legit mma champs, full time for over a year? I think that quite possibly trumps a couple years mama training in a regular, Anywheresville, USA gym.

        Not saying it makes him great, but it’s a VERY decent start.

        • He’s a fake wrassler pushing 40. The greatest trainers in the world isn’t enough. He needs a time machine.

          Then again, I completely underestimated Conor McGregor, so……..

    • Spot on Darin!

  • cant wait to see this guy get beat.

  • Why all the hate ? He seems like a nice guy. People that are complaining that he isn’t ready and doesn’t deserve to be in the UFC shouldn’t watch the fight.

    Though I dare to bet most haters are more excited for CM Punk’s fight than any title fight with Mighty Mouse in it.
