Jon Jones on Thursday struck a plea deal in Albuquerque Metropolitan Court for his March drag-racing incident.

Part of Jones' plea deal includes going to driving school, which he'll have to complete along with 60 hours of community service. If the once-considered greatest fighter of all time doesn't complete the terms of his sentence, he'll face up to 90 days in jail. The news was first reported by TMZ.

Jones was pulled over five months ago by police in Albuquerque, New Mexico and hit with five different citations. Most of the citations were thrown out by the court, but the fighter pleaded guilty to Unlawful Use of Modification of Exhaust System and Improper Display of Registration Plate.

The evening Jones was pulled over, he was arrested because the citations violated his probation from his hit-and-run incident from last year. The incident was caught on video and it went viral.

Jones hasn't had the greatest run of late. Including the hit-and-run and probation violations, Jones was pulled from the UFC 200 card because he reportedly tested positive for estrogen blockers. As a result of the failed test, Jones could be out of action for as much as two years.

As of today, Jones is yet to answer to USADA and the Nevada Athletic Commission about his positive test results, and there's still no timeline for when he can return to fighting. It's clear, however, that Jones has bigger fights that he has to deal with in his life as of right now.
