UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones performed a stunt with Steve-O that left part of the Jackass star’s ear missing. Bones shared a video on social media of the aftermath of the stunt, which showed Steve-O’s ear bleeding and missing a piece.
The stuntman and comedian stopped by in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and spent time with Bones as well as former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm. A few clips were shared of Steve-O wrestling with the two fighters. Bones shared the clip of Steve-O’s ear injury early Friday morning.
Warning: the video is graphic and may disturb some viewers. Here is the clip:
The video starts with someone off-camera saying, “I’ll pick that up as soon as we get your ear secured underneath that belt.” Jones then said, “I’m getting ready to hurt Steve-O.”
The clip does not show the stunt, but it shows the aftermath. Bones took a video of Steve-O’s injured ear, saying: “Well, Steve-O came to town and started talking s**t, and you see how that turned out for him. I ripped half his ear off.”
Steve-O has blood all down his ear and side, with a chunk noticeably missing from the top part of his ear. The UFC light heavyweight champion then said, “You think Mike Tyson did something to [Evander] Holyfield? Mike Tyson had nothing…”
The clip then shows a stunt with Steve-O balancing a knife on his nose.

Jones’ Future in the UFC Continues to Remain Unclear
A few weeks ago, Bones announced on Twitter that he would be vacating his UFC light heavyweight title amid a public feud with the promotion’s president, Dana White. However, Jones is still the champion and has not officially vacated the belt.
On the UFC website, Jones is still ranked as champion and No. 1 on the male pound-for-pound list. Bones has been mostly silent about his UFC future since making the comment.
The feud with White stems from botched negotiations for Jones to move up to the heavyweight division and fight Francis Ngannou. Jones believes the UFC is underpaying him, and White believes that Bones’ pay is fair.
