Jon Jones Checks Out Of Rehab After Just One Day

UFC President Dana White said he was “proud of Jon Jones for making the decision to enter a drug treatment facility” after the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion tested positive for cocaine metabolites in a drug test on December 4th, but according to sources Jon “Bones” Jones left the rehab program just 24 hours after checking in.

Jones’ mother, Camille Jones, however, is confident that her son is going to continue to learn more about the subject and make the appropriate changes so that it does not become an issue in the future. Heres what she had to say:

“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,” Camille Jones said. “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. When he tested positive, my first question was, do you have a problem, a serious problem?” she said. “And then he told me what happened. Jon is usually very honest with me, so he told me what happened. I was like, good for you….good. You needed to be caught, it was just timing. “You know, it did not affect his game, it was not in his system during the fight, so he’s still a good athlete. So before something becomes serious of it, I was glad it was nipped in the butt.”
