Watch: Jon Jones Didn’t Exactly Ooze Class Upon Learning That He Broke Ovince St. Preux’s Arm

If Jon Jones had tweeted this himself, we have no doubt it would have been deleted already.

Jon Jones returned to the octagon on Saturday night following a near 16-month layoff to take on dangerous late-replacement Ovince St. Preux in the main event of UFC 197.¬†Understandably, the mercurial former light-heavyweight champion wasn’t at his best but the performance he turned in was still good enough to earn him a wide unanimous decision victory after 5 rounds.

The judges scorecards read; 50-44, 50-45 and 50-45.

Not only did Jones inflict defeat upon ‘OSP’, he also left the Tennessee native with a rather serious injury. According to Dana White(via ESPN), St. Preux suffered a broken-arm at some point in the 3rd round.

Upon learning this information for himself, rather than express concern, the always controversial Jones saw fit to break out a celebratory dance.

He’s certainly no Paige VanZant.

While St. Preux faces into a lengthy period on the shelf, Jones could be heading straight into another training camp. Now the interim champion at 205lbs, he is on a collision course with the true light-heavyweight kingpin – his erstwhile foe Daniel Cormier, and there is reason to believe that fight could happen as early as July.
