Although it’s been a couple of days now since the MMA world was rocked by the news of Jon Jones’ arrest, and the stripping of his UFC title, the situation continues to dominate the sport.

Of course, Jones hasn’t been convicted of the felony charge of hit-and-run he’s been handed, but because of his previous scandals, it’s clear most observers believe he needs to make some serious changes.

Case in point, middleweight contender Michael Bisping appeared on the latest “UFC Tonight” Thursday, and here is some of what the fighter had to say about Jones (quotes via FOX Sports press release):

“Is he going to be sorry for what he’s done? I want to see Jon learn from this. He’s not a bad person.”

And when asked if the situation has been bad for MMA as a whole, “The Count” responded:

“Yes. It wasn’t too long ago that the sport didn’t get what it deserved. We’ve all worked hard to look better.”

Bisping is coming off a unanimous decision win over CB Dolloway at UFC 186 last weekend.
