Jon Jones UFC 145UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was supposed to have his day in court on Tuesday for sentences related to DWI charges. The sentencing has been pushed back to July 3, according to Stephen Reilly on PressConnects.com.

Jones, on May 29, plead guilty to a DWI charge stemming from a car accident on May 19 in Binghamton, N.Y.

Jones drove his 2012 Bentley into a telephone pole. No other vehicles were involved.

He pled guilty to Driving While Intoxicated as part of a plea bargain with the District Attorney’s office in Binghamton City Court. Traffic violations for an improper turn and deviating from a direct course were dismissed.

The plea agreement would see Jones receive a fine and a conditional discharge. A conditional discharge means Jones’ sentence will be served as long as probationary conditions are met. If he fails to meet the conditions, the full penalty could be reinstated.

The judge immediately suspended Jones’ New York driver’s license.

Jones will appear on July 3 for final sentencing.

The outcome of Jones’ sentencing is not expected to affect the scheduling of his UFC 151 main event title defense against Dan Henderson.
