Jon Jones involved in car accident, fight with Ryan Bader at UFC 126 unaffected

UFC light heavyweight rising star, Jon Jones was involved in a heavy collision with another car this week, yet escaped without a scratch, making “Bones” set to go head-to-head with Ryan Bader at UFC 126 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jones, posting via his Twitter page, said:

“I just got into a car accident, police said it wasn’t my fault.. I walked away without a scratch, GOD IS GOOD…. Hopefully, I get blessed with one of the fight bonuses, my insurance hasn’t kicked in yet and I may have just taken a major loss… Everyone’s okay, me and some teammates were on our way to the dog park in between practices, good thing we were all wearing our seatbelts. I refuse to allow this situation to steal my joy, the fight will go on.”
