Mike Winkeljohn suspended Jon Jones from his gym after his recent arrest

Mike Winkeljohn recently made an appearance on MMA journalist Ariel Helwani's The MMA Hour. In the interview, the Jackson Wink MMA coach talked about Jon Jones' recent arrest. Winkeljohn revealed the measures that have been taken after the former champ's latest run-in with the law.

"I was very disappointed, it's tough. The hardest part was when you hear that his [Jon Jones'] daughter said, 'You gotta call the police officer'... it just makes it hard when he keeps getting in trouble. But I had a conversation with him and I said, 'Jon, here's the deal man, you're like my little brother. You have to stop drinking and fix these things for a certain period of time so you can come back to the gym'... So at the moment he's out of the gym, he's not allowed to come in the gym because I feel I had to do that because ignoring it and expecting different results is insanity. He's got a lot of yes people around him that won't tell him the truth, so he might hate me for it but I had to tell him the truth."
