Jon Jones has revealed today that he has lost his sponsorship deal with Nike following his brawl with title rival Daniel Cormier.
The UFC Light Heavyweight champion had perhaps one of the most coveted deals in UFC history when he signed it with the global apparel brand but now it is no more.
The news was revealed during his hearing in-front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), which was looking into the brawl that happened in the MGM Casino in Las Vegas.

Punished further by the NSAC
It didn't stop there for Jones either, as he was told that he would be expected to pay a $50,000 fine and do 40 hours of community service in Nevada.
The news of the community service hit home harder than the fine for Jones, who in a series of tweets said:
"40 hours of community service in Vegas with a fight coming up is the only thing that really concerns me" he said.
Soon followed by: "The fact that this needs to be completed before the fight is definitely going to have effect on my camp. I respect the commission though."
Jones then became very positive about his upcoming work, saying: "I am excited I get to work with kids though that part is a blessing in disguise. I'll give them my best.
"Dude these kids are going to never forget meeting me, it's funny, I'm actually walking back and forth, in my hotel room right now thinking about my message to them. I'm excited to have the opportunity to possibly change a life."
Taking it in his stride
It wasn't just the community service that Jones was spinning in his favour.
The champ then put up an Instagram video, which shows him despondently holding his Nikes while 'Graduation Song' by Vitamin C plays over the top.
It's a classic Jones move to do so but whether or not he removes it from his Instagram like some of his previous videos is yet to be seen. It's up there now so watch it while you still can.
