Jon Jones Changes Story About Homophobic ‘Hacked Phone’ Incident
Last week, Jon Jones lost his phone, a mysterious homophobic hacker found it, and then proceeded to fire gay slurs at a Swedish teenager on Instagram under Jones’s identity.

Hermes Franca Deported to Brazil After Serving Sentence for Sexual Abuse
Back in May 2011, UFC veteran Hermes Franca was arrested and charged with seven counts of sexual abuse in the first degree and two counts of unlawful sexual penetration in the second degree, after allegedly molesting one of his own jiu-jitsu students, who was under the age of 14.
