Oklahoma University's wide receiver, Jones, was filmed in a bathroom brawl at a bar on campus and it didn't end well for the star.

Jones could be heard in the video telling two men: "Get the f**k out of here."
The man next to Jones then pushed the guy in the front, who is smaller in stature.
But little did they know the man at the front had been trained in MMA, according to reports, and after he was pushed he took a swing at Jones.
Punches started to fly before the man picked Jones up and dumped him on the bathroom floor.
The two other men are wrestling, before the unknown man puts Jones in a chokehold.

The Oklahoma University Daily reported Jones required surgery on his left orbital eye after the fracas.
Lawyer Woodrow Glass alleged Jones was not the aggressor during the incident.
“He was trying to de-escalate that situation,” Glass told The Daily.
“But unfortunately, it wasn’t de-escalated despite his best efforts, and he became the victim of this vicious assault you’ve seen.”

Former NFL star Pat McAfee gave his thoughts on the altercation and said footballers needed to be careful when in situations like Jones' in the future.
He said with the rise of MMA it is unwise to assume most people can't defend themselves.
"Can’t be drunk fighting randoms anymore," he wrote on Twitter.
"Nowadays even the dudes without cauliflower ears know how to break your s**t in about 15 different ways.
"Spencer Jones learned a valuable life lesson this weekend. The Affliction T-shirts might be gone but MMA folks are still amongst us."
