If you’ve been waiting to hear what Jon Jones has to say about his failed drug test, and his recent rehab stint, then it looks like you won’t have to wait much longer.
The UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion, who tested positive for cocaine metabolites heading into UFC 182, recently did an exclusive interview with FOX Sports. In the interview, which will air Monday night on FOX Sports Live, Jones discussed his recent drug test, drug treatment program and more.
The network has released a brief preview of the interview, which shows Jones saying the following:
“I’m not a cocaine addict by any means, or I’m not a frequent user. I just made a really dumb decision and just really got caught with my pants down in this whole situation.”
That should be an interesting interview, and it will be fascinating to see how fans and observers react to what Jones has to say.
If you missed it yesterday, the UFC has announced that it has fined Jones $25K for violating the promotion’s athlete conduct policies. “Bones” extended his storied reign at UFC 182 by scoring a unanimous decision win over Daniel Cormier.
