Jon Jones will appear in his first video interview since the drug test failure for cocaine, and it will be aired on Fox Sports on Monday night. The network has released a teaser for the interview, with Jones claiming that he's not a frequent user of the drug.

"It was just a really embarrassing situation. I had to explain to so many people that I'm not a cocaine addict by any means, not even a frequent user," Jones said. "I just made a really dumb decision and I really got caught with my pants down in this whole situation."

Following his one-night stint in rehab, Deadspin reports that Jones has been passing off this failed test for cocaine as an "isolated instance" instead of a more regular thing, which according to their sources "isn't true, as far as anyone can tell".

The light heavyweight champion has recently been fined $25,000 for violating the UFC code of conduct policy.
