UFC’s Jon Jones still with fiancée Jessie after domestic incident
Jon Jones is back in the UFC, waving another championship belt, and it appears his fiancee, Jessie Moses, is sticking by his side.
After winning the heavyweight championship at UFC 285 on Saturday, Jones kissed and thanked Moses several times. Post-fight Octagon interview.
“I want to thank my family, I want to thank my beautiful fiancé Jessie for being my biggest supporter. I love you so much,” Jones said.

The longtime couple’s relationship ended last year after Jones said on February 23, 2022, that Moses had left her, five months after the domestic violence incident.
In September 2021, Jones was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery, domestic violence and injury or tampering with a vehicle.

“If you’re a Jon Jones hater, toast,” he wrote. “I feel like s–t.”
On Saturday, it appeared that Jones and Moses had repaired their relationship, and Jones was back on the road to superstardom with his longtime partner.
Jones hopes to fight Stipe Miocic for his first heavyweight title defense in July.
