Colby Covington lived with Jon Jones while both were competing for Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge, Iowa.
Covington saw Jones at a very young age and miles away from home during their time together, which was also spent with fellow UFC fighter Joe Soto.
After news broke of Jones’ failed drug test that resulted in his exit from UFC 200, Covington posted on Twitter, “Can’t say I’m surprised.”
Everybody makes mistakes but did you learn from them and turn into someone better than before?
