Jon Jones Hints At Motivational Comeback On Instagram, Dana White Lets Rip
They say a cat has nine lives. If Jon Jones was a cat, he’d probably be dead by now.
Still, the dude seems determined to make (yet another) UFC comeback. So much so that he has made (yet another) motivational social media post, in which he lays out his plan to ‘climb the mountin’ (yet) again.
This dude must be bloody delusional. Check this statement of intent out:
“If I made it to the top of the mountain once, I can do it again,” he wrote. “I believe there are talents inside of me I haven’t even discovered yet. There’s nothing I put my mind to that I can’t achieve, just got to be willing to put in the work. Who’s ready to work?”
He also posted this quick workout video:
Well, UFC president Dana White just spoke during an appearance on The Jim Rome Show and damn, his assessment of the man many consider to be the GOAT was scathing. Here it is in its entirety:
“I don’t know. He’s not a ‘just about the money’ type guy. He’s really not that kind of guy. I just think that Jon likes to party and he’s a guy that likes to go out and have fun and do whatever it is that he does, and I think the money and the fame made it a thousand times worse.
“This guy couldn’t control himself and would completely go off the deep end. I’m not sitting here acting like Mr Holier-than-thou, we’ve all gone and had fun and probably partied a little too much here and there, but he consistently, consistently kept doing it.
“Even when he would completely f**k up, he would pull himself together and come out and completely f**k up again. Even this last time when he came back, fans forgave and he was the most popular fighter and everybody wanted to see this guy succeed, and he did it again. It’s just unbelievable.
“Even worse than that, this guy was looking at jail time. This judge gave him another shot and this guy was looking at some serious jail time and a lot of bad stuff and that still didn’t wake him up. If that’s not a wake-up call, you’re unfixable.”
Damn, that’s harsh as fu*k! Still, one thing that was noticeable was the fact that he didn’t actually rule out an eventual return for Jon ‘The Cat’ Jones, he just assassinated his character. I gotta say: it’s brutal but kinda deserved.
What do you guys reckon? Would White, being the businessman that he is, allow Jones to return to the Octagon again? Or has he used up all his chances? Let us know in the comments!
