Jones, the longtime former UFC light heavyweight champion, is currently on the sidelines as he packs on weight ahead of his move to the heavyweight division this year.
But before he trains his crosshairs on the likes of Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou, Jones has been taking on another kind of foe entirely in the animal kingdom.
'Bones' has long been known as a hunting and firearms enthusiast but has come under fire after posting the video to Instagram showing him in a helicopter in pursuit of the animal - before he pulls the trigger, immediately stopping the boar in its tracks. Jones then fires a few more shots into the prone beast.
"One shot, one kill, lots of bacon," Jones wrote to accompany the clip. "Was an honor hunting with medal of honor recipient Patrick Payne," he added before tagging a selection of fellow hunters.
"That's not hunting, that's pay to win," said one fan, suggesting that Jones' hunting trip was little more than an exercise of shooting fish in a barrel.
