Within a very few days Stipe Miocic (19–3) will defend the World Heavyweight Championship for the second time UFC against Daniel Cormier (22-2). It will be the third time that both of them face each other with the heaviest title in between, which generates enormous expectations for that fight. This time they will do it in the main fight of UFC 252 this August 15 at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. Anyway, there is another opponent who wants to take the title from him, so this one responded.
The monarch is not thinking of Jon jones (26–1) at this time, but, in a recent interview with Line Movement, Miocic talks about the World Light Heavyweight Champion UFC. There, he mentioned the chance of a possible fight between the two. He is clear that it does not depend on him or on “Bones” who face each other in the Octagon, as well as what will happen if one day it happens. “Yes (I would be interested), but it depends on the UFC. I will fight anyone. I think it would be a great fight for him and that I would come out as a champion. He’s in a different weight class and I think he would do well. I know I would do it well, “he dictated.
Miocic talk about Jones and he thinks he would defeat him if they met in the cage, but at the same time he knows that he would have a good adventure in the heaviest division if he makes the decision to compete in it. This is not going to happen anytime soon, it is not even clear if the 205-pound monarch wants it, but it would certainly be interesting to see “Bones” compete against the biggest. For this reason, many have already begun to formulate their opinions on digital platforms.
