UFC star Jon Jones and his C.A.R.E group gave back to the community after a restaurant was vandalized

Jon Jones might not be thinking about getting into the UFC Octagon soon, but he is doing a lot of work in his locality.

The UFC Light Heavyweight Champion was recently caught cleaning up and fixing a restaurant. The Santa Fe restaurant was vandalized by a white supremacist group as Ariel Helwani shared the video.

Jones and his crew could be seen working on a wall with some racist remarks put on. They painted over the words and this isn’t the first time the UFC has been out to help out the public.

The US has been hit hard not only by the coronavirus but also the protests surrounding the George Floyd murder.

Many cities have seen protests against the police and also Black Lives Matter protests. Jones was seen recently telling vandals to stop attacking shops as he did not want the wrong message to be sent out from some rioters.

Jones has always tried to give back to the community, even though he has had his problems with the law too.

When does Jones fight next?

The MMA legend is still holding the Light Heavyweight belt, but there is no confirmation of when he returns to the Octagon.

There are issues regarding who his next opponent will be too. He has dominated his division and isn’t keen on a rematch against Dominick Reyes.

Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costa have spoken of facing Jones, but they are middleweights. Jones was keen on fighting Francis Ngannou but he would have to move up a division.

He even called out Mike Tyson for a boxing/MMA bout, but it seems unlikely that will ever take place again.

Jones recently also claimed he would be open to sitting out for a couple of years during an interview. He wants more money from the UFC and it will be interesting to see who blinks first.
