Jon Jones shared what it was really like to live in New Mexico, on social media, causing many other fighters and fans to react. The video reached beyond other MMA fighters, as Caleb Plant chimed in beneath the post with his reaction.

The video posted by Jones on June 20 was from his home security camera footage. The tape showed a black bear roaming the street in front of his house and wandering into his driveway next to his parked pickup truck.

Plant commented on the post, sharing the thoughts of most viewers who are not used to bears wandering free in front of their homes.

The boxer commented:

"Wild stuff lol"

The 31-year-old was born and raised in Tennessee but currently lives and trains out of Las Vegas with his wife, Jordan, who works with Premier Boxing Champions.

Unlike Plant, several of Jones' training partners at Jackson Wink MMA were unsurprised, including UFC strawweight Michelle Waterson-Gomez.


Jon Jones makes 'Cocaine Bear' reference to the black bear in his driveway

When it comes to his controversial past, Jon Jones is often open to joking about his admitted history with cocaine. 'Bones' tested positive for the substance in 2015 and reportedly checked himself into a rehab center to address the issue.

Since then, the long-reigning champion acknowledged a fan referencing the incident in a viral press conference moment at UFC 247. More recently, Jones poked fun at his video of the bear in his driveway on June 20 with a reference to his drug usage history and the 2023 film 'Cocaine Bear.'

Jones commented:

The fantasy horror film featured a wild bear who developed an addiction to cocaine while on a murder spree in the woods.

Since his infamous incident with the substance, Jones has claimed to be free of all drug usage and solely focused on his fighting career and recovery from injury.
