Jon Jones will reportedly be back in the public eye soon enough, as according to a new report, the UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion plans to attend this Sunday’s AFC Championship game between the Patriots and Colts. Just last week, Jones announced that he was entering a drug treatment program, following the announcement that he had tested positive for cocaine metabolites in December.
This latest news comes from WBNG Binghamton, which is also reporting that Jones’ stayed at the rehab facility for one night. The outlet recently conducted an interview with the fighter’s mother, Camille, who relayed that Jones continues to get educated on the “subject.”
While discussing her son’s failed drug test, Camille told WBNG:
“I’m glad that this happened to Jon, this stopped him in his tracks, this let him know that he may need to change some friends, you know, because everyone is not for you for the best,” said Camille Jones. “So this is a good thing as far as our family is concerned, so we wasn’t upset. Me and my husband considered it a blessing from God that our child was able to be helped and know that he need to stop and know that he needed the assistance to stop before it came to something worse.”
Jones’ brothers, Arthur and Chandler, play for the Colts and Patriots respectively. “Bones”, meanwhile, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 on January 3rd.
