Jon Jones allegedly hackles comedian during live show
Jon Jones is currently the UFC heavyweight champion, and he was set to defend his title against Stipe Miocic in UFC 295. However, he suffered an injury, leading to its cancellation. As a result, the fighter has been making trips around the world while waiting to recuperate.
According to First Sportz, Def Noodles, a comedian, was up on stage and performing his routine as per usual. The only strange thing being that a man in the audience kept hackling and interrupting his routine. The man was obviously under the influence of alcohol and kept passing comments.
Def Noodles assumed it to be an ordinary citizen who jad just a few too many to drink. However, the citizen in question turned out to be Jon Jones. He handled the situation with wit and made humorous jokes to smoothen the continuous interruptions.
However, after finding out the identity of the hackler, Def Noodles uploaded the whole incident to his YouTube channel. Although one couldn’t visibly see ‘Bones’ in the audience, the voice and tonality suggested it was him. Also, Dennis Feitosa confirmed it was the UFC champ who heckled him.
