“At first I was a little offended that the UFC would post something like that. I don’t think it’s healthy for the general public to see the UFC champion say they’re going to kill someone. I don’t think it’s really in my best interest. But it’s in the UFC’s best interest. So I kind of had to swallow my pride. I said it.”
UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones released this statement to UFC Tonight, during last night’s broadcast on FOX Sports 1.
