Jon Jones Full Statement.
“While we all work to understand and cope with the stress and uncertainties surrounding the current state of our world, I want to express how truly disappointed I am that I have become the source of a negative headline again, especially during these trying times.
I am disappointed for letting down the people I care about the most, my family, friends and my fans. This morning I entered a plea deal with the Albuquerque DA’s office. I accept full responsibility for my actions and I know that I have some personal work to do which involves the unhealthy relationship I have with alcohol.
I have dedicated so much time and energy to improve my community and I will not allow this personal setback to hinder my work within the community when we need it most.
I truly appreciate the support I have received from the community of Albuquerque and all my fans around the world. I very much look forward to putting this behind me. Thanks you all for your continued love and support and please take care of yourselves.”
