For the sixth consecutive night, protesters filled streets across the country to protest against police brutality and the killing of Floyd, an unarmed black man who had died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.
What started as peaceful protests sometimes turned violent, and Jones, who called for justice for Floyd, appeared on a post on Sunday making a dramatic intervention as he took spray cans away from two protesters at Albuquerque’s home, New Mexico.
“When a black young man trusts me, I feel frustrated too but this is not the way, we started to make the bad situation worse.
“If you really love your city (505), take care of your care. All your senior bosses need to talk to, call your young family members and ask them to go home tonight.”
CNN contacted the UFC to obtain a statement from Jones, but has not yet been answered.
Derek Chauven, a former Minneapolis officer who was seen with his knee on Floyd’s neck and charged with third degree murder and second degree wrongfulness was arrested but protesters say the charge is not severe enough, and are demanding the charges of the other officers involved.
Police arrested hundreds of people from all over the country last night as protesters clashed with law enforcement.
The bitterness started due to a pay dispute with Jones on the pretext that the fighters were undervalued.
