    Dana White on Jon Jones: 'There's definitely something wrong' if you're doing cocaine three weeks before huge fight

    UFC president Dana White is not sure if Jon Jones is addicted to cocaine. But he believes there must be some issue if Jones is engaging in recreational drug use less than a month before a massive fight.

    . . .

    . . .

    This isn't the first headache with outside-the-Octagon issues Jones has given the UFC. The champ was busted for DWI in 2012. He plead out and didn't receive any jail time.

    . . .

    White said he believes Jones when he says he's going to clean up his life, moving from upstate New York to Albuquerque, N.M., to train full time at Jackson-Winklejohn MMA.

    "but we'll find out" is right.

    lots of folks get a DUI and do blow and are addicts.

    and lots of folks get a DUI and do blow and party hard, and then stop when they feel like it.

    Barkley got a DUI looking for an alley to fuck a hooker in. and he's back on TV. Jones keeps winning, keeps making $.

    guess we'll find out. or won't.

    How the hell did Jon Jones get this good basically training seasonally? Sure his frame and overall size have been a big part of his success, but damn he became that dominant that young without even training full-time. Gotta give the man his due. Gus is the only chance Jones loses at lhw in my mind. After that he's just coasting.

    As for the coke, Dana has a good point. He's either got a problem with coke or he's having a problem with focus, and I think he knows it too, hence the smart decision for his career to move to Albuquerque

    Jones saw the quote that said "hard work beats talent when talent doesnt work hard" and then found the guy who wrote that, snorted a line and elbowed him in the ribs

    Charlie sheen has been living that sort of lifestyle for the last 25 years. Drugs, partying, women, hookers, you name it. He also had the the #1 rated tv show. made millions per episode. Was able to make it to work on a daily basis(pretty much) and now has another top rated tv show. Just because some guys like to party, doesn't mean they have a problem.. we just happen to live in a very very conservative, politically correct society. Where if you get drunk once, you're suddenly an alcoholic. haha

    Dana is implying his old friends were a bad influence on him. Which is probably true to a degree. However, if he wants Coke, there's plenty of it in Albuquerque and plenty of "new" friends he could make to do it with if he so chooses...

    Not sure if the $15 million figure is accurate, but I would pissed as hell if I was a fighter and the promoter was talking publicly about my estimated personal finances. That's really bad form.
