Stipe Miocic reacts to the 'fireflighter call out' by Jon Jones
by | VIEW 191
Stipe Miocic responded to a call out by Jon Jones, in which Jones said that Miocic might be interested in fighting him and that he might want to "take time off from being a firefighter right now". “I think everyone tries to say that and they realize they’re in a world of hurt when it’s not happening the way they want,” Miocic said, as quoted by mmafighting.com “I don’t know if he knows this, but I’ve been a fireman the whole time I’ve been in my career in the UFC.
But whatever, that’s none of my business. I don’t really care”.
Stipe Miocic on the match
Stipe Miocic did not expect the match to go as it did. His opinion was that Gane would win, but also that the fight would last much longer.
“I thought I was going with Ciryl in beginning of the week, but the more I talked about it with other people, the more I thought about it, I thought it was more even,” Miocic said. “I just said if Ciryl keeps it on the feet, he picks him apart, him all day.
It’s still going to be a great fight, but I thought if Jon used his wrestling it’s going to be a long night for Ciryl. I was not ready for that. I thought it was going to be a big war for five rounds, but I was definitely wrong.
Good for Jon”. Stipe is aware that Jones has never lost, but he is convinced that he will be the one to inflict his first defeat. “I’m going to win, there’s no question,” Miocic said. “There’s no question.
I know that [he’s never lost,]” Miocic added. “It sucks that he’s going to lose. He’s going [to have] a big ‘one.’ I’m not going to imagine it, it’s going to happen”.
