The UFC has stripped Jon Jones of his light heavyweight title and suspended the 27-year-old indefinitely as a result of his alleged involvement with a hit-and-run over the weekend.

Its official. The only person able to beat Jon Jones, was Jon Jones.

I used to say the same thing about Anderson Silva. The statement came to fruition when he fought Weidman the 1st time.

I would hate to be the 1st person Jones fights when he comes back. You know he will be looking to make a statement.

Now this sends a clear message. I LOVE that they did this. Let's Jones and everyone else know there are consequences for doing dumb shit like this. I'm sure his prior actions came into play but regardless, this was the worst one yet.

I can honestly say I am shocked that they stripped him. I was contemplating if they would still let him fight at 187....but looks like they wanted to make a statement to Jon.

Being a Jones fan I'm actually very pleased by this. While I have no respect for him outside of the cage, in the cage he'll still remain undefeated. It's almost like an easy out. He won't have to face the monster Rumble, and I can still say he was one of the best in the cage.

On the other hand, hopefully this won't turn out as muddy as the Thiago Silva incident. Stripped him before he was actually convicted of a crime. Now I definitely agree he's an idiot, but maybe the UFC should have just suspended him til the verdict of the trial, then either strip him of the title or reinstate him. And just have Johnson and Cormier fight for an interim title. Who knows, maybe the pregnant girl won't testify or some bullshit like in the Silva case. I hope he gets the book thrown at him, but I can't predict anything anymore

This is going to work out so good for the ufc in the future. Jon jones comeback and his redemption. The dumbasses will want to see that.

Almost everyone will want to see it, just most of us will be hoping he's unsuccessful at getting his title back.
