Most would agree that you had to be brave or stupid to rob one of the world’s most accomplished fighters, but that’s exactly what happened when Jon Jones chased a burglar with his shotgun.
Jones uploaded surveillance cameras on Sunday that appear to show a suspected robber strangely dealing with several of Jones’ cars at his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The burglar appears to open one of the car doors and turn on the lights of another before a dog bark is heard and a garage door opens.
Seconds later, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jones approaches the car before the suspect sees him and sprints away. Jones follows him with a shotgun.
“I knocked the muzzle of my shotgun on that driver’s window last night,” Jones wrote on Instagram.
“The next time you try to rob someone, make sure you are quick enough to get away from them.
“He’s lucky that I’m smart enough not to shoot a man while he’s withdrawing. People I know get tough, but your life isn’t worth a few tangible possessions. What do you think about this video, what would you have done differently? ” ? “
Imagine trying to steal someone’s property and Jon Jones is running towards you with a shotgun.

Jones is no stranger to confrontations with criminals. In March 2011, the day he became the youngest UFC champion in history, Jones was involved in arresting a robber who robbed a woman.
On that occasion, Jones also tracked the thief and held him until the police arrived. Hours later, he defeated Mauricio “Shogun” Rua by TKO in the third round to claim the UFC light heavyweight title.
Of course, Jones was also involved on the other side of the law. In 2015, he was involved in an accident involving a car that was driven by a pregnant woman. Then he fled the scene. He was then stripped of his world title and suspended indefinitely by the UFC before finally returning.

Jones is expected to make his UFC heavyweight debut in his next fight as he seeks to add a world title in a second weight division to his already long list of achievements and consolidate the UFC number one pound rank that he recently beat Khabib Nurmagomedov lost, much to Jones’s chagrin.
