4. Jon Jones
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones made headlines when he intervened a riot in Albuquerque. The New York native has spent the majority of his career in the New Mexican capital and is fiercely protective of it. So when he saw youngsters spraypainting private businesses, he wasn’t happy.
He cajoled the young thugs into walking away and even intimidated one into handing over his can of paint. Later Jones wrote a lengthy Instagram post condemning mindless violence. Jones sees it as counterproductive and takes away from the central message of the current social movement.
