UFC champion Jon Jones has left rehab... after just one night

They tried to make him go to rehab but he said…okay, but for one night only.

JON JONES CHECKED in to a rehab facility last week, but it looks like it was a one-night only gig for the UFC light-heavyweight champion.

WBNG 12 reports that Jones will be in Foxborough on Sunday, when his brothers — Arthur and Chandler — will be in opposite corners for the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts.

It emerged last week that ahead of his recent successful title defence against Daniel Cormier, Jones tested positive for traces of cocaine in an out-of-competition test.

According to Jones’ mother, Camille, the 27-year-old MMA star spent just one night in rehab. Camille also said she’s glad her son was caught out.

“When he tested positive, my first question was, do you have a problem, a serious problem?” she said. “And then he told me what happened. Jon is usually very honest with me, so he told me what happened. I was like, good for you….good. You needed to be caught, it was just timing.

“I’m glad that this happened to Jon, this stopped him in his tracks, this let him know that he may need to change some friends, you know, because everyone is not for you for the best. So this is a good thing as far as our family is concerned.

“You know, it did not affect his game, it was not in his system during the fight, so he’s still a good athlete. So before something becomes serious of it, I was glad it was nipped in the bud.”

Conor McGregor is ‘the Irish Muhammad Ali’, according to UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta
