Jon Jones returns to training for the first time since being suspended by the UFC

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was back training recently at the Jackson-Winklejohn MMA academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His training partner Igor Araujo confirmed the news with MMA Fighting.com.

"On the first day Jones returned to the gym, they put him to clean the mat when the training session was over," Araujo said. "They always pick someone to clean the mat after the training, and he didn't complain he had to do it. He's a nice guy, and I look up to him inside the gym. [...] He trains every day. He's always joking around and laughing. I spoke with him the other day and he's cool, being positive. The coach tells us what to do and he trains normally, every single day. He's in shape, too."

Jones is currently suspended by the UFC after being involved in a car accident that broke a pregnant women's arm and fled from the scene.
