While Jones and his team associate having the short-notice change of opponent play a part in the fight, Jones also revealed a troubling matter that may have also been a major distraction for his fight.

Jones revealed during the UFC 200 press conference at the Madison Square Garden on Wednesday that his mother’s leg was amputated the week of his fight with “OSP.”
