6:38 PM PT -- Jon Jones is promising to make some serious changes in his life following his arrest ... and it's starting with swearing off alcohol.
Jones posted a video to his Instagram story moments ago ... showing the UFC superstar working out and promising to come back better than ever.
The fighter captioned the post with several statements ... including his decision to step away from booze for good.
"I have way too much trauma to consume alcohol, my brain simply can't handle it anymore," Jones said. "Now is the time to work harder than ever."
Jones also says he plans to "turn this nightmare into the best thing to ever happen in my life" and "get right back on my horse."
Jon Jones allegedly pulled his fiancee's hair and then headbutted a police car, leaving a dent in the hood and chipping paint, during his Las Vegas arrest early Friday morning, TMZ Sports has learned.
According to a Vegas Metro PD arrest report, cops were called to Caesars Palace around 5:08 AM for a "domestic disturbance" in a hotel room ... involving a white female who was "bleeding from her nose/mouth" and a "black male adult who is a professional MMA fighter."
When police arrived, they spotted Jon walking near the hotel, where they stopped and detained him.
Cops say 34-year-old Jones became "irate and smashed his head onto the front hood of the LVMPD patrol vehicle," leaving a medium-sized dent, as well as chips in the paint.
While handcuffed, police say Jones experienced a wide range of emotions. At one point, cops say he threatened to sue the department for handcuffing him on the biggest night of his life.
FYI, Jones' 2013 fight with Alexander Gustaffson was inducted in the UFC's Hall of Fame only hours before his arrest.
The officers also claim Jon joked about wanting to fight all the cops, to see if he could take them all on at the same time.
Police say they then interviewed the alleged victim, Jon's fiancée, Jessie, and the mother of his 3 kids, who claimed she was asleep when Jones came back to their room after a night out in Vegas with his friends.
When detectives were leaving the scene, they note Jessie was concerned about when Jon would be released from county jail.
As for who called the police, Jessie went down to a security booth to ask for an additional room key around 4:30 AM. A security guard said she saw blood on her person, and asked Jessie if she was okay. The guard claimed Jessie then began to cry and said she was scared to return to her room.
The guard then claims Jessie and Jon's youngest child said "can you call the cops?"
Jones -- who told police he never got physical his fiancée -- was ultimately arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery and felony tampering with a vehicle.
