UFC’s Jon Jones still with fiancée Jessie after domestic incident
Jon Jones is back in the UFC hoisting another championship belt, and it looks like his fiancée, Jessie Moses, is staying by his side.
Moments after winning the heavyweight championship at UFC 285 on Saturday, Jones kissed Moses several times and thanked her during his octagonal post-fight interview.
“I want to thank my family, I want to thank my beautiful fiancé Jessie for being my biggest supporter. I love you so much,” Jones said.
Moses stood there in her all pink suit and smiled the whole way.
The long-term couple’s relationship appeared to be over last year when Jones said on Feb. 23, 2022, that Moses left him, five months after a domestic violence incident.
In September 2021, Jones was arrested and charged with battery misdemeanor, domestic violence, and wounding or tampering with a vehicle.
Police responded to a call from Moses, where she reportedly told police that Jones had placed his hands on her and blood was visible on her clothing, nose and mouth.
He posted $8,000 bail and the domestic violence charge was dropped three months later after a plea deal.
In February 2022, disturbing bodycam footage showed Jones violently smashing his head against a police car while under arrest and repeatedly calling the police officer “off-king nerd.”
That same week, Jones tweeted that Moses had left him two months earlier, after a 20-year relationship, and that the decision was “now final.”
“If you’re a Jon Jones hater, cheers,” he wrote. “I feel like st.”
On Saturday, Jones and Moses seemed to have mended their relationship, and Jones is on his way to superstardom again with his old partner by his side.
Jones expects to fight Stipe Miocic in July for his first heavyweight title defense.
