Thirteen days after his failed drug test for cocaine came to light, UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones (pictured) finally broke his silence.
Jones gave “Fox Sports Live” an exclusive interview detailing his past cocaine use.
It was clear Jones’ PR team put their fingerprints all over it. Jones was well prepared and for the most part, seemed sincere.
Only Jones knows if everything he said was truthful, although he did contradict himself about his past and current cocaine use.
Jones said he dipped and dabbed with cocaine in college, but the illegal drug was never an issue. He then said he doesn’t dip in cocaine now, but was just busted for using it 31 days before the biggest fight of his life.
As far as being honest, Jones said he partied with cocaine in college but “pretty much” didn’t use it again until the day before December 4th’s random test. If I recall correctly, Jones only went to college for two years so he was roughly 20 the last time he used cocaine. Then, just one month before UFC 182, he all of a sudden decides to use again?
That might be hard for some to believe.
