Jon Jones is likely the greatest fighter in UFC history, and is also a very publicly flawed human being. During a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Bones said he thinks the unfortunate out-of-Octagon issues are in the past, and why. 

"I do feel like the storm is behind me," said Jones, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. "It has been an interesting journey and I've learned so much. I'm just grateful. I'm grateful to have had all the lessons that I've been able to learn. I'm grateful that God has kept me through all of it and allow me to grow so much through it all. I think my best days are still ahead of me. I feel like I'm just now really getting into a nice groove about what it means to be a father and a professional athlete and a person with great responsibility, and I'm excited about this and I feel like I'm stepping into it well."

"I just feel like I was maybe at a place where I felt like I was throwing a lot of greatness away and I believe that talent and when you have opportunity, it's a terrible thing to waste. So I feel like these days I take more accountability for my actions and my emotions and my circle and behaviors and things like that. I think that's been the major difference, just more accountability."

"You can never promise anything in life. You just never know what twists and turns life is going throw at you. But I do feel like I'm on a great track and I'm excited to just continue to elevate and just be the best person that I can be and try to help as many people as I can help. I've never been more excited for my future. I'm really excited for my future. I see nothing but great things coming in my future."

Jones defends vs. Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 on Saturday at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

There's an old saying in the UFC... I know it's in MMA, probably in UFC... that says, fool me once, shame on... shame on you. Fool me... you can't get fooled again.

I feel like this could be a copy paste of his statements the first few times he got caught doing stupid shit as well. I'm over it, I learned, God, blahblahblah.
