Jones has since taken to social media to share photos of the selfless act and the ‘heroes’ who helped him, with his 2 million followers.
The longtime UFC champion wrote in several tweets: ‘We stand together, hope you enjoy your Fourth of July.
“We found this man in the middle of a field today, he was suffering from severe dehydration.
“The group sincerely believes that we saved that man’s life.

“It felt great, those men and women were heroes today.
“We dragged him under a tree and forced him to drink about four bottles of water. I even had him bite a hot dog before we left. ‘
After telling the life-saving intervention, a user commented that Jones could now be considered a “hero.” But the UFC fighter politely disagreed and instead responded by revealing his pride to the group that had helped alongside him.
He added, “I definitely didn’t try to paint myself as a hero, but I was prouder of my group members to be honest.

“Some younger children have learned valuable lessons today.”
Jones last stepped into the Octagon at UFC 247 and defeated Dominick Reyes with a unanimous decision to retain the light heavyweight title.
But since holding his belt, ‘Bones’ has been stuck in a bitter contract dispute with UFC supremo Dana White.
He has sensationally even revealed that he has no plans to fight in the near future, and is willing to wait until he thinks he’s getting enough discount on UFC’s biggest events.
