The Massively Divided Reaction To Jon Jones' Teary-Eyed Press Conference

The Massively Divided Reaction To Jon Jones' Teary-Eyed Press Conference
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Well... That was something.

All eyes were on the MGM Grand as Jon Jones took the decision to face the media fresh in the face of the news that has rocked the MMA world.

Jon Jones is out of UFC 200, and Brock Lesnar v Mark Hunt will be the new main event. We had heard from Dana White and Daniel Cormier, both of whom were bemused and disappointed, but then came the time to hear from the man himself.

Jones deserves some credit for facing the media at all, it would have been far easier, and expected, for him to return home and hide under his duvet cover, but that is about where the credit for Jones ended. He denied the allegations, claiming that he did not knowingly take any banned substance, and offered an apology to Daniel Cormier.

You can watch the interview in full here, but the reaction split opinion across social media.
