UFC star Jon Jones confronts vandals and takes away their spray cans during riot

UFC star Jon Jones confronted vandals on the streets of New Mexico as riots following the death of George Floyd continued in Albuquerque.

Floyd’s death after a police officer knelt on his neck for over eight minutes has sparked protests and marches across the United States.

However, violence and looting has occurred in several cities, while in Albuquerque police have urged the public to avoid the downtown area until they can restore order.

On Sunday evening, Jones confronted two masked vandals and demanded them to give up their cans of spray paint.

In the video, Jones repeatedly told the two vandals, ‘gimme the spray can’ before they were handed over.

The 32-year-old posted the video of the incident on Instagram along with the caption: ‘Is this s*** even about George Floyd anymore?!?

‘Why the f*** 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 s***.

‘All you old heads need to speak up, call your young family members and tell them to come home tonight.’

Meanwhile, Jones has also announced that he is vacating his UFC light heavyweight title following a dispute over pay with Dana White.

White had accused Jones of demanding ‘Deontay Wilder’ money, but the 32-year-old responded by slamming the UFC for underpaying fighters.
