UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones had no time for rioters vandalizing his community over the weekend. As Yahoo Sports reports:
UFC fighter Jon Jones isn’t going to stand for people looking to vandalize his town. Jones confronted two teenagers carrying spray cans around Albuquerque, New Mexico, over the weekend, and posted video of the incident on his Instagram page.
In the video, Jones follows one person demanding that person give Jones the spray can. After Jones receives the spray can, he walks over to another person, who immediately gives up their spray can.

Is this shit even about George Floyd anymore?!? Why the fuck are you punk ass teenagers destroying our cities!?? ?? As a young black man trust me I’m frustrated as well but this is not the way, we are starting to make a bad situation worse. If you really got love for your city (505), protect your shit. All you old heads need to speak up, call your young family members and tell them to come home tonight.
In his post, Jones asks why “punk ass teenagers” are “destroying our cities.” He urges people who care about Albuquerque to protect the city, and tells family members to make sure their young family stays home. Jones expresses he’s frustrated about George Floyd, but Jones believes tagging and carrying spray cans is not the way to spark change.
It appears that the rioters suddenly weren’t so aggressive when actually confronted by someone they knew meant buisness.
