Video: UFC's Jon Jones talks cocaine, poor choices, future and more in one-on-one FOX Sports 1 interview

No excuses!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, was popped for cocaine metabolites prior to his title fight against Daniel Cormeir, which went down at UFC 181 on Jan. 3, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Soon thereafter, "Bones" announced that he'd check into rehab to take care of his issues; however, it was discovered that the process of rehabilitation, in this case, lasted a mere 24 hours.

To make matters worse for Jones, UFC docked him $25,000 for violating its code of conduct policy, but it hasn't stopped expressing how much it will continue to support the champ. And while "Bones" has kept quite throughout the whole ordeal, he told his side of the story in an exclusive one-one-one interview with FOX Sports 1's Charissa Thompson last night.

He messed up! Cocaine is not his thing ... at all. He just got caught.

Check out what the champ had to say about getting "caught with his pants down" in this "embarrassing situation."
