UFC champ Jon Jones offers $1,500 reward for missing rare cat
Jon Jones has enough on his plate later this month in Baltimore, but now he has the stress of a missing pet to deal with, as well.
Jones, the UFC’s light heavyweight champion, has offered a $1,500 reward for the return of Mufasa, a rare cat breed, the fighter told KRQE News in Albuquerque, N.M., where he trains at the Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA camp.
Jones (19-1 MMA, 13-1 UFC) is preparing for his latest title defense later this month at UFC 172 against Glover Teixeira (22-2 MMA, 5-0 UFC) on April 26 in Baltimore.
Mufasa, apparently named after the father lion in the Disney animated classic “The Lion King,” is about 20 pounds, Jones said. The cat is a cross between an African serval and a domestic house cat and is known as a Savannah cat.
