UFC’s Jon Jones ‘Mooned’ His Rival’s Mother

Getty Joe Rogan speaks with Jon Jones during the UFC 214 weigh-in at Honda Center on July 28, 2017 in Anaheim, California.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones “mooned” his ex-opponents mother, according to the fighter.

“Bones” defended his 205-pound belt against Chael Sonnen at UFC 159 in April 2013. The two had coached “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite of each other prior to the bout, and they settled the score inside the Octagon with Jones defeating “The American Gangster” by first-round TKO.

And according to Sonnen, Jones ended up flashing his bottom to Sonnen’s mother hours later.

Speaking on MMA Fighting’s “The MMA Hour,” The American Gangster recounted the story. He said the mooning took place early the next morning while Sonnen, Sonnen’s mother and Jones were in a hotel lobby.

Here’s the story:

“Oh my goodness, this was great,” Sonnen said via the outlet. “So Jon and I fight in New Jersey, and we get done [at] about 2:00 a.m. [and back] from the arena. The fight ends at 1:00 a.m. and I’ve got to get stitches, then there’s a post-fight press conference, so it’s 2:00 a.m., it’s a late night. I’ve got to be in the lobby at 6:00 a.m. the next morning to meet my mother to get to the airport to fly back to Portland. So Jon was up around the clock, and when I get to my mother in the lobby of the hotel at 6 a.m., there’s only my mother and Jon Jones there.

“Jon is wearing nothing but red sweatpants,” Sonnen continued. “He’s got no shirt, no hat, no shoes. When I say nothing, he’s wearing nothing but red sweatpants. And he’s visiting with her, and he’s being very polite. Jon excuses himself, my mother and I get our bags and we’re going to go. Jon takes the elevator up, then he walks out. It was one of those hotels where the doors are on the outside so you can see everything.

“And Jon yells down to her one last time to get her to look up — dropped his pants, mooned her, went into his room and went to sleep. She loved it.”

Jones & Sonnen Have Been at Odds for Years

Interestingly, Jones and Sonnen’s time on “The Ultimate Fighter” was arguably the highest point of their tumultuous relationship. They were very cordial with each other, during the taping and all the way through to their fight.

However, as the years have gone by, the two have become enemies. They frequently take shots at each other, Jones via Twitter and Sonnen via his YouTube channel and Twitter. The American Gangster has been critical of Bones’ behaviour and legal issues outside of the cage, and Jones has gone as far as blocking Sonnen on Twitter.

Jones Reacted to Sonnen’s Battery Allegation

Sonnen recently received five citations for battery, being linked to a hotel brawl last weekend in Las Vegas. Few details have been released about the incident, but Jones took to Twitter to react to it.

“Chael Sonnen, I’m not gonna sit here and celebrate you getting battery charges against a female last night,” Bones tweeted on December 19, 2021. “That would make me like you, and I’m nothing like you. Instead I will wish your family well, I wish the victims family well.”

Jones was arrested in September 2021 and was charged with misdemeanor battery, as well as a felony, being accused of pulling his fiancée’s hair and headbutting a police cruiser. Earlier this month, Jones accepted a plea deal and will not spend any time in jail.

“It’s funny how the people who criticize and judge you the most have some of the nastiest things in their closet,” Jones continued. “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. You’ll get no stones from me. Good luck.”
