So first it was phone was stolen, then it was that it was hacked. Now....
A few high-profile situations haven't helped, even when they've been beyond his control. In 2012, he was slammed by UFC president Dana White when he declined a short-notice bout against replacement Chael Sonnen, a decision that led to the cancellation of a show for the first time in company history. Why he bore the brunt of responsibility in the eyes of many has never been explained; to them, his was just a selfish action, as if the champion doesn't have the right to proper preparation.
More recently, just last week, Jones was involved in a social media situation where an Instagram user posted screen shots of Jones allegedly using homophobic slurs against him.
Speaking publicly about it for the first time, Jones said that the responses came from someone employed by a social media company he's used to increase his online presence, and that the offending party has been fired.
