All he has to do is follow the terms of a plea agreement. Jones will be on supervised probation for one year, and an interlock ignition will be placed on any vehicle he operates. He will be able to use marijuana with a medical card.
“I do believe wholeheartedly that the companies that own Bellator and some of these other leagues do have the same amount of financial backing that the UFC had and I do believe that having Jon Jones be the new face of your promotion, especially today when I’m really making an effort really for the first time to get my sh*t somewhat together,” Jones said on Steve-O’s Wild Ride! Podcast (H/T to MMA Fighting). “I do feel good. My last DWI has done a lot for me. It set me free in so many ways. It embarrassed me. It reality checked me. I’ve never been on camera drunk for the public to see like that. It was humiliating and somewhat of a bottom for me and I’m ready to snap it into high gear.”
“I think right now’s a good time for any company to have me for sure,” Jones said. “My goal is to be an asset to any company that I’m a part of. I got a feeling if I am able to get out of my UFC contract, that I would be huge for another company.”
