UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones has been actively involved in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, whether it was speaking out on the situation through Twitter or speaking out against vandalism on Instagram.
The champion is now helping out the citizens of Albuquerque, New Mexico by cleaning up the areas affected by the vandalism associated with the protests.
Jones posted several videos and images through Instagram and Twitter showing himself cleaning up in Albuquerque:
MMA Junkie also provided the following transcripts of what Jones said in the videos:
“All right, it’s time to put in some work. (We’ve) got a nice little crew of guys – volunteers that are going to (help out). … You guys ready to do some work? Let’s get it. Let’s see if we can find something to clean up. If you guys need help with your small businesses, we’re here. Hit us up. We’ll be here all day. Time to work.”
“I’m not really sure how this helps anything, guys. I’m all for protests. I think it’s great to protest and voice how you feel about things. It’s really important, but … this is just not right. Vandalism is just not right.”
