Jon Jones confirmed on Twitter that his long-time fiancée has left him following his latest domestic violence arrest in September.
On Feb. 22, the Las Vegas Review-Journal released bodycam footage from the arrest which showed a belligerent Jones accusing the responding officers of racial profiling while spewing racial slurs himself and referring to one of the individuals as “Officer Nerd.”
Jones can also be seen in the footage headbutting a police vehicle leaving a dent and damaged paint in the process.
One day after the release of the arrest footage, Jones took to Twitter to confirm that his fiancée Jessie Moses left him months ago and presented it as an opportunity for his haters to celebrate.
“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 sh*t.”

Jon Jones deleted the tweet shortly after posting it, but the MMA world was quick to react to the news, some supporting Jones who clearly has personal demons to address while others continued to condemn the former light heavyweight champion for his actions over the last several years.
I will never pile on someone when they’re down. What you have accomplished in this sport is second to none, and I pray you find your peace and beat those demons 🙏🏾

This video, like the arrest video prior to it two years ago, is difficult to watch.
Jon Jones, in my opinion, is the greatest mixed martial artist of all-time and his career is still one of the biggest “what ifs” in the MMA history.
Just how much greater could he have been? https://t.co/ja47accLkI

Jon Jones really has hit rock bottom

Jon Jones deserves absolutely no peace. He’s a domestic abuser. That’s not even mentioning the hit and run.
Of course people are upset. https://t.co/I2gp9ZXOuP

My mom was beaten by my father growing up. She walked on eggshells for nearly a decade before he ultimately committed suicide. About five years into their marriage, his mental health deteriorated. He suffered from schizophrenia and fell apart. I’ve lost patience for Jon Jones but pic.twitter.com/tQPUxeL4tD

I think I’m gonna retire from almost all of the Jon Jones discourse at this point… What can you really even say about the guy that hasn’t been said 3,000 times over the past decade?

I dont wanna wake up one day and see Jon Jones ODed,
Or got into a crash, Or got into a barfight and got stabbed or shot.
I just want to wake up and see Jon Jones is happy in his life.
205, 245, retired I dont care.
Please take care of yourself Jon…

This guy is a troll or a moron looking for attention. Asking to give sympathy to a serial cheater who commits a hit and run on a pregnant woman and beats the mother of his children in front of the children is embarrassing. Don’t give this idiot if the attention he wants.

The domestic violence charge stemming from the September arrest was dropped in December. Jones pled no-contest to property damage and was ordered to pay a $750 fine and attend anger management classes.
