"At the risk of angering the once—and almost certainly future—light heavyweight champion, I ask him the question I’ve been wanting to ask since we met.
Why the hell would a pro fighter, days away from the end of a yearlong drug suspension, admit to doing drugs? That’s not exactly flying under the radar, is it?
Jones doesn’t skip a beat: “As far as me doing coke before a fight, that’s not me trying to be a bad guy. That’s me frickin’ doing a bump—you know, at a party. The truth of the matter is, you’d be surprised how many people have done coke. I’ve been around some of the greatest athletes in the country. Athletes with a lot bigger names than me do coke. But people don’t talk about it.
“I just like to have a good time, man,” Jones says. “If you can afford to smoke a little weed, and do a little coke, and still win world titles, who’s to tell you you can’t? I understand these things are illegal. And once you get caught doing it, it’s humiliating. But at the same time, I’m not an addict or anything like that. You don’t see me walking around weighing fucking 100 pounds with my teeth rotting out and scabs all over my face.”
