The light heavyweight champion must be looking inwards a lot lately, as he has come to a realization that he may be a bad guy trying to be good.
“I think I am a bad guy that’s trying to be good,” Jones said during the UFC 239 media day (via Nolan King & Ken Hathaway of MMA Junkie). “Religiously, we’re all sinners. We’re all sinners. We’re born into sin. It’s out nature to sin. It’s a decision to do the right thing when no one is looking. I think all of us, as humans, none of us are shit. It’s our choice to try to be more than. So, I would have to say I’m lean closer to being an imperfect human that’s trying to do the right things and be good.”
UFC 239 takes place tonight from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Jon Jones and Thiago Santos headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
