Brendan Schaub slammed Jon Jones for his recent comments about being sober for 60 days.

Schaub, on his podcast The Fighter and The Kid with Bryan Callen, stated that Jones' unapologetic tweet was flawed and that 'God' had nothing to do with him hitting his wife.

"God had nothing to do with you hitting your wife, my man... I was speaking with someone very high up from the UFC about Jon Jones and that guy was like, 'think how much money he has missed out on, with all the bulls**t he's done in his life. The millions and millions of dollars, the Nike endorsement, the big fights, everything!... Self-sabotage."

Watch Brendan Schaub talk about Jon Jones from 1:16:30 on his podcast below :

Jon Jones was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 24th. He was charged with misdemeanor battery, domestic violence and damaging or tampering with a police vehicle. The incident marked Jones' fourth arrest since 2012.

Jon Jones recently posted a tweet where he informed fans and the MMA community that he had completed 60 days of sobriety after his arrest in September. He tweeted:

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” My family, my life, my career could’ve been over after what happened in Las Vegas. But God had other plans for me. 60 days sober and counting."
