UFC President Dana White appeared on Wednesday’s episode of FOX Sports 1’s “America’s Pregame,” to publicly address Jon Jones’ recent positive drug test.
“I was shocked, obviously, and this is one of those situations where it’s so different than if a guy gets busted for performance-enhancing drugs,” White said. “You worry about the person first, you know? You forget about the fighting and the work side of it. You worry about the person, Jon Jones as a person. He got checked into rehab, they’re going to evaluate him and then we’ll go from there.”
