Stipe Miocic 'confused' by UFC decisions

Stipe Miocic revealed in an interview with The MMA Hour that he had the plan to fight Jon Jones. However, Jones' opponent will be Cyril Gane. Miocic doesn't know why. “They went with Ciryl,” Miocic said on The MMA Hour.

“I’m not a matchmaker, I can’t tell you [why]. I don’t know. [The UFC] just went a different direction, so they said maybe July”. Miocic has a plan to fight the winner of the match. Both are great fighters, and it would not be a problem for him to have Gane as his next opponent.

“Yeah, I definitely was [disappointed],” Miocic said. “[Jones] is great fight, it’s a great matchup for me, but at the end of the day, it’s not my decision unfortunately. But we’ll see what happens.

I think those two guys are going to go out and have a fight, they’re both gamers, and I’d love to get a crack at one of those guys, whoever wins it”.

A lot happened in his life. However, Miocic is still ready to fight anyone.

“I had a lot going on, man,” Miocic said. “Just spending time with my family and had personal things going on that I needed take care of, but overall I’ve just been busy, and the way things shook out with these fights, it just didn’t happen the way it was supposed to.

I was ready to go but just never got the call. There’s times when they needed me and I said yes, and then it was just kind of, ‘We went in a different direction.’ What are you going to do? Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t”.

He believes that the fight against Jones would be an ideal chance to confirm his qualities. “I want to cement my legacy even more,” Miocic said, “so what better way to do it?”
