Dana White has pulled no punches when giving his views on Jon Jones’ most recent run-in with the law.
After the former UFC light heavyweight champion landed himself in prison after violating the conditions of his parole during a traffic citation last week, on Thursday morning it was confirmed by Judge Michael Martinez that Jones’ titanic clash with Daniel Cormier at UFC 197 on April 23 would go ahead.
However, that favourable ruling never stopped the UFC president from criticising Jones’ actions.
“I haven’t talked to him obviously, he’s been a little tied up since that happened,” White told TMZ on Thursday.
“Let me tell you what, when I get pulled over by the police I am the most polite human being you’ve ever met in your life. There’s no upside to talking back to the police.
“It’s the dumbest thing you could ever do, especially if you’re in Jon Jones’ position.”
White also urged fans not to hold their breath’s if they are wanting to see Jones change his ways.
“I don’t think Jon Jones is ever going to be the Jon Jones people expect him to be,” White said.
“I think Jon’s going to do Jon. I think Jon tried so hard to play the good guy for so long it drove him crazy. Jon is just going to be Jon now.”
