Jonathan “Bones” Jones, one of the greatest fighters of all-time, is not even impervious to MMAeth’s pervasive grasp. On top of the world at one moment, in the depths of addiction the next, the former UFC Light Heavyweight champion nearly lost it all while battling his demons.
How can you tell if a friend or fighter close to you is struggling? Erratic behaviour, running from hit-and-runs with fistfuls of cash and purchasing oversized African cats are key indicators. Two nights in jail may have quenched his thirst, but until then we hope Jon gets his life in order.
