While the record that Jon Jones has in the octagon is one that many can look up to, his record as it pertains to some of the darkest times in his life is something that many should not try to replicate at all. As many know, Jon Jones was recently arrested and then let out after an $8,000 bail was paid. Since the arrest of Jon Jones has taken place, a lot has changed in a rather short amount of time not just for him, but for everyone around him as well. Becky Lynch DM’s To Conor McGregor Revealed.
UFC fighters are currently not really allowed to talk about Jon Jones or the incidents that had taken place that pertain to him. While many hope that Jon Jones gets his life around; will he make the steps needed to come out of this a better person?
In a recent Instagram story on Jon Jones’ page (as he is currently free) Jones is lifting weights with the Randy Newman song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” playing in the background along with several statements scattered around the video. Jones does not directly address his arrest.
In all, the text in the video state: “I have way too much trauma to consume alcohol. My brain simply can’t handle it anymore. I will leave alcohol in my past forever. Now is the time to work harder than ever. Turn this nightmare into the best thing to ever happen in my life. What the devil means for bad, God means for good. Get right back on my horse.”
We will have to see if this means that Jon Jones will go to rehab. Dana White has also stated he will wait to see how this all plays out.
