A statement the UFC boss refutes: (Via The Boston Herald)
UFC boss Dana White is refuting reports that light heavyweight champion Jon Jones spent only one day in rehab after testing positive for cocaine, saying that is “not necessarily the case” and that more clarification is to come from the star fighter.
“When the whole story comes out, people will understand, it will be put into perspective. When Jon Jones comes out and does his interview, the truth will come out, and everyone will understand. Or they won’t, you know. Jon is a very polarizing guy, people either love him or they hate him. Either way, the truth will come out soon.”
“You can bust guys, you can fine guys, but I can’t pull him out of a fight. That thing will be in a lawsuit in 3.5 seconds and I’ll lose. So then we don’t have a fight and I’ve still got to pay the money.
“When you start talking about cocaine and some of these other drugs, that’s hardcore stuff, man. And that’s when people need help. So I want to know that. I wish I could know what everybody was doing, but you can’t police 567 guys year-round.”
