In an exclusive interview with MMAFighting.com Jon Jones opens up about his time away from the UFC. He was suspended from the UFC and stripped of the UFC Light Heavyweight belt when he was involved in a hit and run car accident and given 18 months of supervised probation.
He told Ariel, “I was afraid. I freaked out. I was afraid to speak to the police at that time. I thought let me just get away from this. I just had tunnel vision. I definitely hit hard and I’m sitting here thinking I need to go. I need to get away from this. So I started running and got maybe five yards away from my car and I remembered I had a bowl, a marijuana bowl in my cup holder. I knew that if the police found that bowl in my car that everything was going to be so much worse than I thought it should be, I guess.”
Jon Jones also speaks about Daniel Cormier, Ronda Rousey and rebounding from his darkest hour.
