UFC president Dana White met with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones recently to discuss his DUI charge following a night of partying in New York.
He is fighting. It won’t affect the date. But how it will affect him in the fight, I have no idea, we’ll see. I’m not involved in all the legal stuff that’s going on. He flew out a few nights ago and sat down with me and Lorenzo (Fertitta) and talked. I like Jon Jones. He’s a good guy, he’s a young kid. He made a mistake and we’ll see what happens.
Jones has an upcoming court day set for Tuesday in Binghamton (New York) County Court on the charges.
