“Is Jon Jones innocent? One hundred percent,” Henry Cejudo said. “It’s almost like these people want to somewhat create a story because they want to portray, keep going with the storyline that Jon Jones is ‘the monster.’

“From what I saw in the video, and getting a chance to know Jon, I could get frustrating at times. Trust me by that, I’ve gotten into it with guys from USADA. People who I’ve known for years, people who have tested me for years. They catch you at a party, they catch you at early in the morning. I mean, it’s normal for you to kind of get frustrated like, ‘Hey man, what’s going on here?’” (H/T MMA Junkie)

Cejudo would even go as far as to say Jones should take legal action against the alleged victim and encouraged him to fight for his name. 

“If I’m you Jon Jones, you know what I would do? I would get her for defamation of character,” Cejudo continued. “I would get her for being a two-faced c*nt, and trying to come at you for something that you really didn’t do.

“I think if anything Jon, you should probably start fighting this and go against them. Make them think twice before they start bringing your name up. Make them think twice before they’re going to make up a story about you, you know, threatening to kill somebody or whatnot.”
