MMA fans are expecting something big from UFC 285 as Jon Jones is finally set to make his much-anticipated comeback against Cyril’ Bon Gamin’ Gane. Jones has been out of competition for a while and believes there may be a divine connection behind his career continuing.
What did Jones say about his divine connection?
Jones spoke on this subject and said:
“My motivation is to become the best man I can be. Be a reflection of God’s love, His forgiveness and ultimately have fans all over the world to see the Christ that is in me. None of us are perfect. We all have ups and downs in life.”
He continued, “I truly believe that my imperfections make me very approachable to a lot of people, and one of my goals is for people to one day see that if a person like Jon can love Jesus Christ, and a person like Jon can have a relationship with Jesus Christ, then maybe I can too. I really believe that my platform will one day [is] I will lead many people to Jesus Christ.”
He added: “I’m not saying I won’t make any more mistakes in the future, but I will be a man with a lot of experience. Ultimately, I truly believe that my existence will save some souls and that is my motivation. To build a great platform and find ways to give glory to God.”
How much does Jon Jones reflect on his own words?
“Bones” wasn’t the best role model outside of the Octagon. Even if we look beyond the steroid issues, he’s been criticized for assaulting women, getting drunk and wreaking havoc, fighting dirty, and taking things personally against some of his opponents. The heavyweight is no longer a teenager and probably isn’t getting any younger.
We hope Jon lives up to his words and becomes a better version of himself.
