UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones is the latest in a long listed of athletes to sign sponsorship deals with apparel giant NIKE, and this week he spoke with USA Today about the deal and also touched on the top of his DUI prior to signing the deal:

On The Nike Deal: “The Nike deal means a lot to me. It symbolizes something that I have been picturing forever. I preach about the law of attraction all the time and how if you focus on something and you apply yourself, if you do all the necessary steps and believe in it wholeheartedly, it can come to you.

On What The Deal Could Mean: “It's definitely a magnificent thing
