UFC President Dana White and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones haven’t spoken to each other since before UFC 200.
The UFC President is now calling the former light heavyweight champion unfixable after his latest run in with USADA.
“Even worse than that, this guy was looking at jail time. This judge gave him another shot and this guy was looking at some serious jail time and a lot of bad stuff and that still didn’t wake him up. If that’s not a wake-up call, you’re unfixable,” White said on The Jim Rome Show.
Jones first run in with USADA came just before UFC 200 and he was suspended a year for his failed drug test.
White believes that Jones’ biggest problem is that he likes to party and he doesn’t care to control himself.
“I don’t know. He’s not a ‘just about the money’ type guy. He’s really not that kind of guy. I just think that Jon likes to party and he’s a guy that likes to go out and have fun and do whatever it is that he does, and I think the money and the fame made it a thousand times worse. This guy couldn’t control himself and would completely go off the deep end. I’m not sitting here acting like Mr. Holier-than-thou, we’ve all gone and had fun and probably partied a little too much here and there, but he consistently, consistently kept doing it. Even when he would completely f**k up, he would pull himself together and come out and completely f**k up again. Even this last time when he came back, fans forgave and he was the most popular fighter and everybody wanted to see this guy succeed, and he did it again. It’s just unbelievable,” says White.
USADA has yet to announce the latest punishment for Jones, but the fighter could be facing a four year suspension.
