Jones: I'm wiser, stronger, and smarter


"The DWI obviously, I learned from that, I've grown from that and I'm a better man because of it. Wiser, stronger, smarter because of all that stuff. Tough year, fun year, crazy year. Lost some sleep some nights, celebrated some nights ... too much, but it was life. I lived another year. I'm alive to see 2013 and I'm blessed and I'm grateful.

Me and Dana are on good terms. I don't think we've ever been on better terms. I think he looks at me as a young man who has respect for himself, who stands up for certain things, who has a backbone and isn't afraid to speak his mind. I owe it to myself to be that way. At the same time, I'm here for the company, I'm here for the business and I'm here for the fans. I'm just trying to do everything right for myself and for the people around me."

Jon Jones - If you can't handle him at his worst, you don't deserve him at his best!

Guy is a class act. This forum is full of what he calls "idiots." I would've used stronger words than that.

For what it's worth, I think there's a distinct difference between being smart and being wise. There are many smart people who aren't wise, and vice versa.

Maybe next year he'll be more intelligent as well, possibly to the extent that he won't list synonyms as if they're different traits.
