Conor McGregor is one of the fastest rising stars in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Dana White has mentioned that young stars need to be careful which path they go down because of how easy it is for impressionable people to fall into traps. McGregor takes a look at Jon Jones’ situation and just can’t understand why he has made the choices he has.
“I can’t understand it,” McGregor said during Thursday’s open workout. “Like, get a driver. Get driven. If I go out now, I’m driven in a limo. You know what I mean? You’ve got money. I don’t know. It’s just a weird situation. But I wish him well. I hope he gets his head together and comes back. He’s a great man, he’s a great champion.”
Jon Jones allegedly caused a three-automobile accident and apparently fled the scene afterwards. Jones turned himself in the following day and is awaiting a court date.
“I’ve met Jon many times and I love Jon. He’s a great man. He’s a great fighter. But his decisions and his choices, I don’t understand how. You’ve got millions in the bank. How can you be in a little desert town in Albuquerque and be in a little rental Buick?”
