Tonight during the UFC 152 on FX prelims show, the UFC aired a special interview with champion Jon Jones by UFC commentator Joe Rogan.

The interview gave a candid look at how events in the past six months have effected Jon Jones.

" My DUI set me free," Jones said. "It set me free from a lot of expectations. I was trying to be perfect for people. That's why people called me fake. I was trying to be the golden boy of the UFC."

"I believe in some cases that MMA fans, and sports fans in general, have short memories," Jones said. "I was embarrassed for all the people that stand behind me (of the DUI charge). That's who I was embarrassed for."

Jones seemed calm and reflective during the interview with Joe Rogan, showing regret for the actions that led to the DUI and and a honest interest in improving himself personally.

Jones addressed in a 2nd segment the reasons for him not taking the fight with Sonnen at UFC 151, which he mostly pointed to his lack of respect for Chael Sonnen.

If I could believe a word that came out of his mouth, it might be a fun interview to watch. But after the last year or so, Mr. "you won't ever see me getting a DUI" Jones has kind of dropped a notch or two down the trustworthiness ladder. Phone Post

It would be hilarious if Vitor finishes him, Dana blows him off, and Jon throws a hissy fit on national television. I would fucking die if that shit happened, literally Ill have a stroke.

It'd be sweet to hear that they're working on a super-fight with AS. Perhaps JBJ's comment re: defending the double-leg would be the start of hyping the fight. Either way, I have one more reason to cheer for JBJ :P Phone Post

And thinking about the AS/SB fight, that could be a good 205 intro fight for AS if SB doesn't upset the apple cart. Phone Post

He will talk about how people don't understand the "real" Jones, how in real life he really is a humble, friendly, likable guy. He will thank God, go on to blame the UFC cancellation, DUI, on other people (Dana, Hendo, Chael). He'll say how everything he does is for his fans (I guess that's why he pulled out of the fight), and will then apologize (apparently for nothing, since he won't take responsibility for anything).

His attempt at damage control will end up making people hate him MUCH more.

I think editing will save what would otherwise be everything you just described. Phone Post

EatMyRashGuard - He is going to call out Andy Silva who will then get "injured" in his upcoming bout against Bonnar and then will continue to rattle that he only wants big fights against little welter weights like GSP or Diaz or he is interested in finally taking on the most deserving middle weights out there like Rockhold or Franklin.
Conspiracy much? Angry. Phone Post

I'll never forget when Special Delivery Jones was squashed at Wrestlemania in a few seconds.

Looking forward to this interview with Special
