    Widely regarded as the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world, Jones allegedly ran a red light and struck a car driven by a pregnant woman. The woman suffered a broken wrist and forearm. According to an off-duty Albuquerque police officer who witnessed the aftermath of the incident, Jones initially returned to his rental car to grab money left in it. He then fled on foot again.

    "There is a long list of things and this was another violation," White told Yahoo Sports not long after the decision was made. "You can only give a guy so many shots."
    "There have been cases between Jon Jones and me and [UFC CEO] Lorenzo [Fertitta], definitely," White said. "Definitely."
    "I just don't want to talk about him personally," White said. "He's being stripped of the title. He's being put on indefinite suspension and any question how he is should be directed toward him and his attorney."
