One moment, you’re the king of the world and sitting on a pile of money, the next you’re unemployed and scrounging around your messy apartment for half-smoked blunts. Such is the case with former UFC champ Jon Jones, who in just a few days managed to crash a rental car, injure a pregnant woman, flee on foot, get arrested for a felony, get stripped of the belt and get suspended by the UFC indefinitely.
And now Reebok has (inevitably) pulled their sponsorship of the best light-heavyweight fighter in the world.
As per ESPN’s Darren Rovell:
BREAKING: Reebok has terminated the contract of UFC fighter Jon Jones effective immediately.

Jon Jones becomes 1st athlete to lose two shoe & apparel deals (Nike and now Reebok) in 8 months. — Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) April 29, 2015
I guess the lesson here is, I don’t know, drugs are bad or something?
