Jon Jones is giving back.

The UFC light heavyweight champion purchased $20,000 USD in brand new coats from the Burlington Coat Factory and donated them on Dec. 23 to a crowd of over 500 people in the Albuquerque, New Mexico community.

He also partnered with Steelbridge and Legacy Church to help provide hot lunches and toys to those in need.

“We have a lot of homeless, we have a lot of mentally ill in this community, and a lot of these guys are just misunderstood,” Jones explained to Albuquerque news station KRQE News 13.

“They need help, and keeping them warm is just going to be a great start for a better future.”

Jones (25-1-0, 1NC) is scheduled to defend his belt against undefeated No.4 challenger Dominick Reyes (12-0-0) at UFC 247 at the Toyota Center in Houston on Feb. 8, 2020.
