Jon Jones showed on instagram this week just how severely he deals with potential intruders.
The UFC legend posted a video of a stranger on his driveway and Jones runs out to confront and chase him away – with a shotgun.
As if the six-foot-four-inch light-heavyweight great – currently training for a move to heavyweight – wasn’t a terrifying enough of a prospect, he had a shogun in hand too!
As you can see by the video below, the stranger did not fancy his chances and fled from the scene.
Explaining the situation on Instagram, he wrote: “Ended up tapping on this guys driver side window with the muzzle of my shotgun last night.
“Next time you try to rob someone, make sure you’re fast enough to out run them.
“He’s lucky I’m smart enough to not shoot a man while he’s retreating.
“People I know times are getting hard but your life isn’t worth a few material possessions.
“What are your thoughts on this video, what would you have done differently?”
The 33 year old relinquished his light-heavyweight title in the summer and is primed to make the long-awaited step-up to the heavyweight division.
This isn’t the first time this year Jones has dealt with strangers, though. During the riots and looting following the George Floyd tragedy earlier this year, Jones confiscated spray cans and reprimanded rioters in his home town of Albuquerque.
A few days later, Jones took to the streets with a team of people to help clean up his battered home town and start rebuilding.
UFC president Dana White has said that Bones will get a UFC heavyweight title shot when he makes his debut at that weight, but not before Francis Ngannou gets a rematch with Stipe Miocic first.
However, the champion has said a second tussle with Ngannou doesn’t excite him like facing Jones does.
By the same token, Jones has been embroiled in a very heated rivalry with UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.
While it’s unknown what weight the pair might eventually meet at, Adesanya has expressed an interest in moving up and it would be a surprise if their bitter feud didn’t progress to the octagon.
