Jon Jones is putting his legal woes behind him and turning his focus back on his fight with his rival, Daniel Cormier, which takes place at UFC 197 on April 23rd.

Jones was released yesterday after serving a couple of nights in jail for a probation violation. Earlier this week he was pulled over for "drag racing," and later turned himself in after a warrant was issued due to his parole situation.

Luckily for fight fans, Jones wasted no time getting back to his training once he was released. Jackson-Winklejon posted a video of Jones training with striking coach, Brandon Gibson, to their Instagram account.

In the caption, Jones took the opportunity to acknowledge his incarceration:

Jones will face Cormier in the UFC 197 main event on April 23rd. It'll be the first time he's been in the octagon since UFC 182. Jones defeated Cormier at that event, but was later stripped of his title after his involvement in a hit-and-run accident where a pregnant woman was injured.
