Default Wow.. bad timing!


The hottest prospect currently on the UFC roster, light heavyweight Jon Jones, was in a car accident today, according to his official Twitter account (via Fighters Only magazine).

"Bones," as well as several of his teammates in the car, all escaped injury-free. The woman driving the other car involved in the wreck, however, was not as fortunate -- she was apparently whisked away on a stretcher.

Jones explains:

"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."
The "fight" that Jones is referrring to, of course, is a rather important one against undefeated Ryan Bader at UFC 126. The 205-pound showdown is set to serve as the night's co main event and will likely vault the winner one step closer to a potential title shot later this year.

God is good, indeed.

Now .. I wanted to be a cop for many years... I did like 20 ride alongs...and I just learned that it wasn't for me...

but one of the things I have learned from the police.. they don't take sides on traffic accidents.. maybe the cops did on this one .. but I can guarantee that if these cops captains read this .. they would be answering some questions....
It is because you chose to get on the mat that makes you the winner. Think about how many people are not on that mat right now. - Luis Sucuri Togno

Bad situation indeed. But if she was on the phone or they could tell who clearly caused the accident then they may be the one to determine the fault.
