John Morgan appreciated Mike Winkeljohn’s decision to ban Jon Jones at the Jackson Wink MMA gym.
Speaking in an interview with Submission Radio, a MMA reporter praised the coach for not allowing the former UFC welterweight champion to train at his facility. The 43-year-old also hopes ‘Bones’ will come out as a better man after the incident.
“I sympathize with him [Jon Jones] in the fact that he was suspended from the gym, but I also applaud Mike Winkeljohn for such a decision. I know it couldn’t have been an easy decision. ”
Morgan added that a gym ban could motivate Jones to improve.
“He said it’s painful to lose the support of someone he valued so much and I hope it really resonates with him. If you really mind losing the support of someone you respect so much, let it be a wake-up call. You know, because multiple arrests were not a call for waking up, multiple problems were not a wake-up call.So maybe it’s the fact that you consider someone a friend and mentor I had to do it for you, maybe that’s the moment the light went out and you said, “Aah! I can’t do this anymore, man. Those around me who are closest to me are now saying not to support me. ‘”
