“So while we were at the park today a crack head smashed this old ladys car window and took off running with her gps just as we were pulling up right away,” Jones wrote on Twitter. “Coach [Mike Winkeljohn] goes after this guy. Without hesitation, Coach [Greg Jackson] went after him…I was shocked and stood there for a second then I threw my phone down and went with my coaches… Before you know it, we’re sprinting up a steep hill chasing after him… I turned the jets on. We caught the guy [and] got the lady’s gps back.”
Could the incident, which is likely to boost to the UFC’s efforts to legalize MMA in New York, affect Jones in tonight’s fight?
“It feels so good to help others. It gives me power and energy,” Jones said.
