UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones was arrested last month in Albuquerque, New Mexico and has since been charged with aggravated DWI, negligent use of a firearm, possession of an open container, and driving with no proof of insurance.
Jones, who has since pleaded guilty to a DWI, has taken to Twitter to respond to some fan criticism, stating that his character gets too drunk while drinking and that the champion would rather focus on his good traits.
Yes, I guess my character gets too drunk when he drinks. I’m not going to allow that to outweigh all the awesome things about myself. Some people only focus on what they want I guess. I focus on my good traits, that’s probably the reason why I thrive every year https://t.co/2z6R8ebz42— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) April 13, 2020
