Jon Jones moved up to the heavyweight division and at some point he’s going to fight. If it were up to Dana White, and the fans, Jones would be touching gloves with heavyweight legend Stipe Miocic.
Miocic, despite wanting to regain the UFC Heavyweight strap, is in. Jones, well not so much. Miocic isn’t the “big one” that Jones wants or deserves.
At least that’s what Jones’ coach Mike Winklejohn says.
Wiklejohn appeared on Submission Radio and had the following to say about the potential bout:
From the outside looking in, I would think that wouldn’t excite Jon. I think Jon wants the big one. He wants to get the big one, he wants the big challenge, and right now Stipe’s not there.Mike Winklejohn on Submission Radio
Miocic/Jones has been viewed by many fans as a dream match. Both fighters ruled their respective divisions for years and many were hoping that Jones’s ascension to the heavyweight division would open the cage door. But Jones wants the champ whomever that may be .
