Jon Jones interview about drug use
1-on-1 with Jon Jones – EXCLUSIVE
UFC light heavyweight champ, Jon Jones, sits down for an exclusive interview with, Charissa Thompson, to discuss his drug use, time in rehab and the impact the situation has had on his life professionally and personally.
The interview appeared on Fox Sports 1, Monday night. The news of Jones’ positive cocaine test sample came back just days after he defended his championship at UFC 182 against Daniel Cormier.
When asked if he knew that he would pop for cocaine use on a random drug test conducted December 4, Jones said “I knew that the test would come back positive.”
“I definitely don’t have an excuse. I’m not here to make excuses for what happened. I did it, basically at a party and I think a coward would sit here and try to come up with an elaborate reason or try to blame something and I’m not gonna do that. I’m not gonna blame my friends and I’m not gonna blame pressure or stress. I’m not gonna blame anything, but what I will say is that, I messed up.”
Jones states that he had done cocaine quite a few times in college but that he does not have an addiction.
