The Jon Jones failed drug test saga has taken the interwebs by storm…….

It’s been a crazy week for UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones. “Bones” was reportedly tested randomly on December 4th, 2014, and the results have been made public mere days after his UFC 182 dismantling of Daniel Cormier.

The results reportedly came back on December 23rd, but the Nevada State Athletic Commission could not stop “Bones” from competing at UFC 182, as the substance does not fall under the banned list for ‘out of competition substances’. Speaking to Yahoo Sports, Jones’ attorney says his client has entered a drug rehabilitation facility:

“With the support of my family, I have entered into a drug treatment facility. I want to apologize to my fiancée, my children, as well as my mother, father, and brothers for the mistake that I made. I also want to apologize to the UFC, my coaches, my sponsors and equally important to my fans. I am taking this treatment program very seriously. Therefore, at this time my family and I would appreciate privacy.” 

Responding to the surprising news about on of their biggest stars, the UFC quickly issued a statement on Jones’ battle with substance abuse:

“We support UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ decision to enter a drug treatment facility to address his recent issue,” the UFC released. “While we are disappointed in the failed test, we applaud him for making this decision to enter a drug treatment facility. Jon is a strong, courageous fighter inside the Octagon, and we expect him to fight this issue with the same poise and diligence. We commend him on his decision, and look forward to him emerging from this program a better man as a result.”

Then UFC color commentator Joe Rogan posted the following video about the Jon Jones failed drug test:

UFC President Dana White had the following to say about the Jon Jones failed drug test story:

“I am proud of Jon Jones for making the decision to enter a drug treatment facility. I’m confident that he’ll emerge from this program like the champion he truly is.”
