Former Middleweight Champion Predicts Jon Jones Will Go Back On Cocaine

0

Former WEC Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho has made a very bold prediction regarding the alleged drug problems of former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones.

Filho, a former cocaine addict himself, explained to Brazilian outlet Tatame.com why he feels it’s only a matter of time before Jones is hooked on blow again.

“The medications didn’t hinder me at all, honestly,” said Filho of his own problem with substance abuse. “The depression caused by me doing cocaine did. I had just defeated Chael Sonnen in San Diego and went to Mexico to celebrate. I got really drunk and started to feel sick. Some Mexican guy offered me the drug and I used it and felt like I was brand new. It lifts you up to the clouds, but once it’s gone, it leaves you deeply depressed.”

From there, Filho switched gears and explained why he and Jones are the same in that way.

“Jon Jones has the same disease I have,” said Filho. “We are genetically weak to ingest any substance. You do it once and then you can’t live without it. Sooner or later, he will go back to it.”
