Jon Jones feels like everybody who has seen that horrific video of a Minneapolis police officer with his knee and the entire weight of his body on George Floyd’s neck that ultimately resulted in his death as he pleaded that he could not breathe.
People have even taken the protests to the streets and several big names from the sporting world have also joined in the protests by showing their solidarity online.
UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones has demanded justice for Floyd all while calling out the cop responsible for the death of the African American man.
After seeing the footage, Jones claimed that he hasn’t seen this level of pain ever in training or his fights.
Jon Jones compared the police’s knee on Floyd to the choke that UFC Light Heavyweight Ovince Saint-Preux often pulls off. It is named the Von Flue Choke.
Four cops have since been fired as a result of Floyd’s death and an investigation is underway and hopefully charges for all involved.
