Jon Jones announced his change with a Twitter post

Jon Jones and problematic behavior are inextricably linked. One of the greatest MMA fighters in history has completely built a very bad image in recent years. From fleeing the scene of a car accident in which he injured a pregnant woman to various violent outbursts under the influence of various opiates.

If we add his tests fails, the picture of Jones' behavior in the past years is completed. Of course, all of this is followed by his almost repetitive excuses and promises to change. Jones often involves faith in this story, even though everything that religious principles do not promote or dictate is characteristic.

All of this leads us to the fact that Jones is one big hypocrite with huge problems when it comes to self-control and off-site behavior. Still, Jones is adamant in his intentions to truly change, at least so he claims. Namely, the former light heavyweight champion shared information via Twitter that he has been sober for the last 60 days.

Specifically, Jones reportedly hasn’t consumed alcohol since the end of May and the ceremony at which he was inducted into the UFC’s Hall of Fame. Then, the famous MMA fighter under the influence of alcohol committed violence against his fiancée, and during the arrest, he damaged the police car with his head.

Jones was subsequently kicked out of the gym where he had trained for many years. Mike Winkeljohn could no longer tolerate such behavior and in agreement with Greg Jackson, Jones was temporarily banned from training in that gym.

It seems that "Bones" has no plans to return, and is intensively considering moving to Arizona, where he would continue to train at the Fight Ready gym. “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

” - Jones quoted the Bible and continued: "My family, my life, my career could've been over after what happened in Las Vegas. But God had other plans for me. 60 days sober and counting." By the way, 58 days have passed since the mentioned incident (September 24), but we can forgive him.

It remains to be seen how long all this will take and what promises we will hear next time. Of course, maybe Jones will surprise us all and truly become an exemplary athlete, and above all an exemplary citizen and family man. However, we listened to that story too many times and hoped for it. It is his turn to fulfill all those strong promises.
