Speaking to Polish MMA website MMARocks.pl before Jones’ plea deal was announced, Blachowicz reacted to the news of the UFC light heavyweight champion’s recent arrest, and said Jones has a problem handling the trappings of success.
“I know they let him out of the arrest, so we’ll see how the situation goes,” he said (via translation). “Obviously, the guy can’t manage the success he has, and that’s the main problem because he thinks he can do anything until something happens.
“Life is unfair, (but) this is how the world works. The law is for rich people. We can’t do anything about it. We can only complain, but it is what it is. The only thing I can do is do my job in the octagon. It’s not my role to be a judge. Jon is going big time when it comes to the unnecessary gun usage involved. However, maybe the hit-and-run with the pregnant woman was even worse than this.”
