UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones breaks his silence on his recent misfortune, calls bashers "sickening".

light-heavyweight champion has posted a message on Facebook, breaking his silence on the past weekend’s incident. He was arrested by the New York Police for allegedly drunk driving, that figured him in a car accident and left him with minor injuries.

Jones wrote:

Man I haven’t added anyone new to my Facebook page in like three years and right now I’m so glad that I haven’t. It has literally been sickening to have so many people try to kick me while I’m down. At the same time, I totally understand, I gave them the leeway to. I screwed up, big time. Just needed to say thank you to all you guys for being amazing friends/supporters.

Always having to deal with so many critics, haters and fickle mma fans, I almost forgot how strong of a home base I had (607 and people that knew me before I was a champion fighter). Although the hell that will come with this hasn’t even started yet, I want you guys to know how much better you’ve all made me feel, not only about this situation but about life, everything. It’s good to feel that people are there and care. With that being said, I felt I should apologize to you first.

I’m truly sorry to those of you that I may have embarrassed in any way, to those of you with kids that I may have let down. I will prove to them as well as to myself, that no matter what is happening in life, we can always work our way back and make things even better than before. Reading you guys uplifting comments was a great reminder for me to not give up on who I am or all the hateful people. I’m not gonna allow this situation to outweigh the positive. I love you guys right back and I promise to make things right. PS sorry about the terrible grammar : )

This message is already from Jones’ facebook page. His management confirmed that it was indeed the UFC champ who wrote the message.

This is Jones’ second time to be involved in a car accident, the first time was last year when his car lost traction while driving in Albuquerque and was charged by the police for driving driving with a suspended license.
