No but he did get his ass kicked for fighting too early. Let Count Dooku be your guide.

Despite how zen Jones claims to be with his meditation, allowing the yin and yang to be utterly imbalanced will only lead to sadness and unfulfillment.
Why is it that Mayweather has problems with assaulting his ex-girlfriend or retired early from his sport? I'd assume that it was because he allowed the negativity to seep too far into his consciousness that it became him. It no longer was a role that he played. Attempting to be Scarface is fun and all but you have to draw a line somewhere.
He tried to do it the right way and yet here we are. Why try hard to appease those that pray on your downfall...? Jones needs to say fuck it and succumb to the path chosen for him by fate. When he tried to be humble and respectful people claimed he was fake. When he tried being himself he was called a douche. Being beloved by everyone is an impossible task so why bother when all you need is family and close friends. People that actually matter because those same people will be your support system through thick and thin.
Fans and haters come and go like the weather. He needs to prioritize what is important, stay true to himself and let everything else fall into place.
