Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is free to focus on his rematch with Daniel Cormier after being cleared of multiple traffic violations.

On Jan. 31, Jones was pulled over for driving 75 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone in Albuquerque, N.M. He was cited for driving without a license, proof of registration or insurance but was not charged for reckless driving. According to a report from, Jones provided proof of registration and insurance in court on Wednesday morning.

Jones then agreed to donate $100 to the New Mexico Animal Humane Society as a good faith gesture. He will not face further penalty as long as he stays out of trouble for the next 90 days.

Jones will face Cormier in the UFC 197 headliner on April 23 in Las Vegas, his first bout since being stripped of the 205-pound title and suspended indefinitely last year. Jones defeated Cormier via unanimous decision in their first meeting at UFC 182.
