Jon Jones: It ‘really hurts’ to lose Mike Winkeljohn’s support after domestic violence arrest
Jon Jones could seriously believe he is a victim following his recent arrest over an alleged domestic violence incident with his fiancée, and that became clear on Wednesday.
During an appearance on "The MMA Hour," Jones' longtime coach Mike Winkeljohn announced that the former UFC light heavyweight champion Jackson Wink MMA had been banned in Albuquerque, N.M. - at least until he shows he's got his cause.
In response, Jones said he was heartbroken when Winkeljohn informed him of his decision.
"Had a heartbreaking phone conversation with one of my longtime coaches last night, it really hurts to lose the support of someone I respect so much," Jones wrote on Twitter. “Sincere thanks to the rest of the coaches for staying with me in the fight. Our journey continues. "
Jones ’now-deleted tweet (pictured above) indicated that other Jackson Wink Jones coaches will continue to train. In a statement to ESPN, a gym spokesman said coaches Greg Jackson and Brandon Gibson Jones will continue to exercise off-site as he continues to work towards a planned return to the UFC as a heavyweight in the second quarter of 2022.
Jones, 34, was arrested on September 24 on charges of domestic violence and vehicle injury and / or tampering after an alleged physical altercation with his fiancée Jessie Moses at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The incident in which Moses was left bloody in front of their children was only the latest in a series of Jones conflicts with the law.

Winkeljohn has stood by Jones' side in everything - including an accident in 2015 that injured a pregnant woman and charges of groping a waitress at a strip club in 2019. But this latest incident of alleged domestic violence was a bridge too far for Winkeljohn, who has three daughters and teaches a self-defense course for women at Jackson Wink.
“I just had a conversation with him. I said, 'Jon, here's the deal, man. You are like my little brother You have to stop drinking and fix these things for a while until you get back to the gym, '"Winkeljohn said. “So he's not in the gym right now. He's not allowed to come to the gym because I feel like I have to. To ignore it and expect different results is madness. "
Jones has yet to acknowledge or take responsibility for his actions. His first time bringing it up on Instagram included a vow to stop drinking and apparently blame the devil for his transgressions.
Jones followed suit by posting a bizarre video of him and Moses, his alleged victim, kissing and applying makeup. Jones later deleted that video from Instagram.
