UFC Star Denies Drag Racing Charges
UFC Star Denies Drag Racing Charges: Former UFC champion Jon Jones is claiming his innocence despite being charged with drag racing in Albuquerque last week.
Police in the area said Jones had also been speeding at the time, but Jones says his actions had been misinterpreted and he was merely greeting fans.
Jones said in a statement on Monday, “I feel that police used a technicality to ticket me for drag racing, while I was simply revving my engine and acknowledging some of my local fans.
