The last UFC PPV of the year 2018 was scheduled to take place in the world famous T-Mobile Arena in LAs Vegas, Nevada.

Jones recently spoke to MMA Junkie. He revealed that he had been apologizing to the fighters for all the problems that the change of venue might have caused them. He also discussed his reaction to testing positive again. Here’s what he had to say:

I feel good, I really can’t afford to feel any other way. I feel bad for the fans. I went around today apologizing to every UFC fighter that was on the card that I’ve seen in person. So far, they’ve all said that they’ve forgiven me, and I think I need to prioritize my emotions and save all the emotions for after the fight. After the fight, I definitely plan on doing what I can do to give back to fans who really lost out.

Honestly, my initial reaction was ‘not again,’ It felt like a nightmare, but honestly, I think my faith in God has really, really helped me out with this situation, just believing that, ‘Hey, listen, this is all what my story is going to be. Just be with me, God, through it all, and keep me strong to handle all this.’ Some things are out of my control, and you’ve just got to learn to focus on what you can control.
