In a move likely many folks expected would take place, Reebok has reportedly decided to terminate its sponsorship deal with Jon Jones, following the fighter’s arrest this past weekend.
Recently the UFC announced that it has stripped Jones of the light-heavyweight title, and has suspended him indefinitely, after he was arrested for a felony charge of hit-and-run in Albuquerque.
Well, on Wednesday, ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell reported the following:
BREAKING: Reebok has terminated the contract of UFC fighter Jon Jones effective immediately.

The 27 year-old was scheduled to fight Anthony Johnson on May 23rd, but now Daniel Cormier will face the latter on that date for the vacant title.
