Soon we are expecting a big and long-awaited fight for the UFC heavyweight belt between Stipe Miocic (20-4 MMA, 14-4 UFC) and the current heavyweight champion Jon Jones (27-1 MMA, 21-1 UFC). This will be a big fight and perhaps the toughest opponent for Jones so far because this is a really big man.
The fight will be part of UFC 295 Nov. 11 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Jones is the undisputed champion of the light heavyweight division, and then he tasted the heavyweight division and in the victory over Cyril Gane won that belt of the champion of the heavyweight division.
Now he is waiting for a man who was already a champion of the heavy category, and who can cause great damage with his punch. “Power, there’s no question,” Miocic told MMA Junkie Radio. “You’ve got a big man in there throwing bombs.
It doesn’t matter if you throw hard or not. All that weight behind a punch with small gloves, anything can happen”. “There’s a lot of reasons: One, I want to fight the best,” Miocic said. “I’m a competitor.
I love to compete and I love fighting. I’m still having fun. My last fight didn’t go as well as I wanted it to. I’m ready to bounce back and get that win”. as quoted by MMAJunkie
Stipe Miocic praised Jon Jones and admitted that he is one of the greatest ever
Miocic said that he is aware that it will be a tough fight and that he is an outsider.
He emphasized that he will look for his opportunity for a knockout, and he stated that Jones needs more experience in the heavy category, because there are all huge giants who can finish the match with one punch. “He’s there to win,” Miocic said. “He’s a fighter. He’s one of the best of all time so, he’s going to be ready to go”.
