UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington has heavily criticised Jon Jones following his arrest this morning — this and much more on Friday's social media roundup.
Colby Covington criticises Jon Jones following his latest arrest
Early this morning, the former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was arrested on domestic battery and tampering charges.
This comes just hours after Jones as induced into the UFC Hall Of Fame for his legendary fight against Alexander Gustaffson.
Jones has yet to comment on the situation as expected, but one man who has already given his opinion on what has gone down is the always outspoken and controversial Colby Covington.
Check out what Covington had to say about Jones' arrest below.
So that’s why @JonnyBones beefed up to heavyweight? Dude is a Scumbag Hall of Famer. First ballot.— Colby Covington (@ColbyCovMMA) September 24, 2021
Covington referred to Jones as "a Scumbag Hall of Famer."
This isn't the first time in which Covington has thrown shade at Jones throughout the years. Several years ago Covington accused Jones of several extremely bad things when talking about when he used to room with him in their wrestling days.
