WTF Mir , your a smart guy man why are you being so stupid. I was hit by a drunk driver when I was three , spent a year in a coma. Split my parents up , screwed my life up as a result of that dividing my family. You have a ton of kids , what if Jones took them out on the sidewalk? …..still ok ? Still just a mistake? Ive walked home pissed out of my head leaving a car behind. Ive ditched cabs and I paid for many…….would you stick a 38 in your mouth and pull the trigger with one round in the chamber? Its not a mistake its a choice , to say otherwise is ignorance.

U know what… WTF do they ask him these questions? Even if he beats his f****** wife every day.. so what.. none of our business.

He’s the champion and with that there is no requirement that you have to be a f****** saint in order to stay the champion

i dont get why people make such a huge deal out of it, yes i dont approve driving while drunk but its not like anybody got hurt during this accident, just let it go.
but from the other hand i think its good that it happened to him (i dont mean that i wish him bad) coz all that negative attention and feeling guilty will definitly give him a lesson and humble him up, atleast it should so.

They should interview Rashad Evans, he has some good insight on Jon Jones. What had me second guessing all of his banter was when he was flossing that Bentley on UFC Primetime, most people get a nice car when the hit money but a 300K plus Bentley seemed a little excessive.

Read between the lines locos?

I think people didn’t actually listen to what Mir said (those that disagree with him).

He’s saying that people are hypocrites, that everyone is up in arms about Jon Jones, when they’ve done the same thing and just not had a bad ending.

He’s not saying people shouldn’t be upset, or that Jones was somehow right in what he did. Just that people have this angelic view of themselves and try and vilify the kid.

Mir Had a good point, He has a sound mind. The point is, it can happen, Thank god the situation was what it was, cause it could have been worse. Just gotta learn from your mistake. You cant learn from your mistake if you CHOOSE to ignore it.

flyingfish420 Says, in 6-4-2012 at 17:43:46 from 216.186.192.172    

Let me start off by saying I don’t think Jones should be held to the fire for this and it does seem like people want to be extra hard on him because of who he is, which I don’t think is right…What does kind of disturb me is the fact that the majority of comments on the whole Jones DWI seem to be just because no one was injured this time that its “not a big deal”. I’m not sure how many of you have actually had first hand experience with a DWI victim but I have and it truly is horrific and is something I would wish on no one. The point I’m trying to make is no DWI should be minimized due to the outcome. Any one of us or our families could fall victim to a drunk driver at anytime.

It’s silly how he’s still able to fight ( guess because he wasn’t tested by the commission) when Diaz gets bashed for pot and overeem for high test levels. Nothing good comes from boozing, I can’t say the same for pot and synthetic hormones.

@Tankless, Sorry man. I understand your point. If Jones doesn’t get a reprimand that fits the crime then it’s bull s***. I like Jon Jones, but why should he get off so easy? oooohhh yea he has tons of money and popularity so that makes everything ok…..

wEz Says, in 6-4-2012 at 19:10:33 from 173.27.86.206    

@Tankless, while I feel for you, you should never be that black and white. Your experience changed you, I get that, but don’t think everyone who has a couple drinks and gets behind the wheel is a drunk driver who still isn’t safe. Case and point, I’m 33, spotless record, had a few drinks and was fine to drive, thought I was in a 45 that was a 35, honest mistake, but the cops were trapping and I got a DWI for being right over the legal limit after I was given my ticket even though I nailed the field sobriety and pleaded with the cop- didn’t matter. The law is absurd to convict people for a POTENTIAL crime and put this on their record for life for first time offenders that make an incorrect judgement call on a regulated substance like alcohol. 2 years ago I get a ticket nothing more. Now I’m F****d for any background check even though I rarely ever drink and have no problem with alcohol.

wEz Says, in 6-4-2012 at 19:16:30 from 173.27.86.206    

Sure its a choice, but so is texting while driving and talking and eating, conversing, listening to music, putting makeup, etc. All things that distract drivers. Do you want to screw their life too based on potential if no accident occurs beyond speeding etc? If I would have been driving reckless, got in to an accident, or hit someone, yeah. Full force of law, otherwise, don’t give a DWI on potential cause its a joke.

Catquick …Im not directing anger at anybody Mir included (what would be the point) but your wrong , a mistake is believing your doing the right thing and finding out it wasn’t . A choice is knowing your doing the wrong thing and doing it anyways. Like I said I drink quite a bit and been tempted to drive cause I could barely walk I was so hammered but choose a little more discomfort to get me home instead (a choice) Does a pedo make a mistake or a choice to touch a kid? He or she knows its wrong but they do it anyway,Jones did the same thing …he made a choice.

Cain and Mir had the best points. Learn your lesson and move on. It’s easy to attempt to demonize him by telling stories of people who were hurt or killed by drunk drivers. It’s just as easy to tell stories who were hurt or killed by people messing with their phones, or just random freak accidents. Everyone is OK and Jon Jones will bounce right back. That’s a promise.

thinker Says, in 6-5-2012 at 02:31:43 from 62.61.78.130    

Frank Mir gave some good advices. A wrong choice is a mistake. We do wrong choices probably every day. Some of those might be fatal. Some of the wrong choices are those that we think are the right ones, but only afterwards see it actually was a wrong choice. If you drink alcohol and get drunk, you’re easily drifted to make wrong choices, because that’s what alcohol causes you to do! When you’re sober, you never think you would drink and drive. But when you’re drunken, you might be tempted to drive because of you’re reduced level of understanding. I think that is what happened to Bones. Hopefully he will never again get drunk. He claims that he is a Christian and Bible tells it is a sin to get drunk.

perulives Says, in 6-5-2012 at 02:56:59 from 72.130.85.218    

Tankless the problem is alcohol tampers our ability to make intelligent choices. Ever been blacked out drunk? I’ve never made a “choice” while blacked out..only mistakes.

Op_of_faith Says, in 6-5-2012 at 11:46:54 from 75.36.149.243    

The problem really is our cultural take on Alcohol…When I was a kid in the 70′s people used to have “one for the road…” Seriously! It wasn’t until the 80′s that DUI/DWI because this amoral act (for clarity I consider it an INCREDIBLE STUPID AND SELFISH ACT but not amoral or immoral).

The sad fact is that just about EVERYONE who drinks and has regular access to a car has committed DUI. It is one of the WORST things you can do but also has to be one of the most common crimes next to Tax evasion. Is it right? NO, but I think judging Jones character over it as anything but an entitled 24 year kid who’s really good and massively successful is way over the top.

For those who missed it, Evans did comment on the DUI:

http://www.mmamania.com/2012/5/29/3051644/rashad-evans-reaction-jon-jones-dwi-arrest-ufc

He was respectful. Jones f***** up. Big time. It DOES mean he has to grow the hell up-like all of us have had to do at some point?-yes it does. It doesn’t make him a horrible person though, not any more horrible than the rest of us…

the right answer is luckily no one got hurt or worse.should he be getting crap for doing it?yes no doubt.have we all done it?probably and we should get crap for it too.it takes a smart person to learn from others mistakes.it takes an ignorant one have to make a bad mistake because they didn’t care to learn from others.we all see whats going on and none of us are immune to the trials and tribulations of life.

As fighters, athletes and humans, its good to promote a “good” role model. I think that’s why they’re taking the time out to address the situation and just using Jones as an example.

I agree with TheAbe. People say “he made a mistake, no biggie, etc etc” OK, but It could be You that He hit into, or your mother or your dad or any other person You know. I don’t know is it a cultural thing, or just a matter of ignorance, but in My country(Poland) You’ll be scared as f*** to do it because when they catch You, You’ll get like 3-5 years in jail, and if You cause an accident its like 5 years and more. People need to think more about the responsibilities of there actions.
