Jon Jones continues to wax philosophical on Twitter regarding his return, now saying he’s out to change his legacy and be as good out of the cage as he’s been in it.

His latest comments began with a simple Tweet, and he subsequently responded to fans asking follow up questions:

One fan commented that Jones’ career was far too damaged to come back from, to which Jones simply responded:

Penick’s Analysis: Jones is trying to prove he’s learned from his mistakes. He doesn’t have to be a saint, and he doesn’t have to be the nicest, most respectful competitor. He should stop with recreational drugs, he should stop making poor decisions behavior-wise outside of the cage, he should be responsible when driving, and he should keep himself out of trouble. When it comes to fighting, he should be what he is. Keeping out of trouble, and getting back to being one of the best fighters the sport’s ever seen, that will help him secure his legacy. That’s it. Win, stay out of trouble. Simple as that.
