As head of the UFC for more than 20 years, he closely followed the controversies collected by Jon Jones. The boss, however, defended his athlete when commenting on the latest incident involving the heavyweight champion (up to 120,2kg). In early April, the fighter was accused of attacking a member of 'Drug Free Sports', an entity that promotes anti-doping tests in the company.

“He (Jones) is always in trouble. There is always something going on and it creates confusion. O 'NBC News' reported the story that he had been arrested, but that never happened. They (press) simply don't find out anymore. In a company that carries out anti-doping tests, all fighters are tested. They can appear in your home or anywhere else. They just need to know your whereabouts. In the home of Jon Jones, she said he threatened him. In sequence, 'NBC News' reported the arrest, but he was not arrested,” said White, in an interview with 'Club Random Podcast'.

Considered by many to be the best MMA fighter of all time, Jones is taking a career hiatus to treat a serious injury. At the end of 2023, close to defending the heavyweight belt against Stipe Miocic, the champion ended up suffering a shoulder injury, which keeps him away from the octagon to this day.

Currently, the division that has 'Bones' as lineal champion also has an interim 'king'. Also last season, Tom aspinall assumed the provisional throne of the division.
