Jon Jones addresses his drinking in response to Twitter troll

Jon Jones

Jon Jones recently acknowledged that he has to work on the “unhealthy relationship” he has with alcohol, but the UFC star does not want that to define him as a person.

Jones was bold enough to answer some questions from fans on Twitter Sunday — less than two weeks after he reached a plea deal in his latest DWI case. Naturally, the topic of his issues outside the Octagon came up. When one fan praised Jones for his fighting ability but urged him not to “f— it up,” Jones seemed to take it a bit personally.

Jones then addressed concerns about his character and admitted his “character gets too drunk when he drinks.” He said he would rather focus on the positives, though.

Jones is one of the best fighters in UFC history, but he just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. His recent DWI and gun charge was hardly his first run-in with the law, as the light heavyweight champion also had a DUI in 2012, a hit-and-run in 2015 and numerous failed drug tests. It’s convenient for him to say he prefers to focus on the positives, but he has to be prepared to answer questions about his poor decisions if he’s going to hold a Q&A on social media.
