UFC champion Stipe Miocic believes that his defeat of the two most talented punchers in the heavyweight – semi-heavy category is just a matter of time, one way.
Expected to confront Daniel Cormier at UFC 252, Stipe Miocic is responsible for protecting the second heavy belt against this opponent.
In addition to defeating “DC” to assert themselves as “the strongest heavyweight in history”, Miocic also aimed at an equally valuable name – Jon Jones.
The promotion story with Jon Jones has long been discussed. However, the heavy changing of the king constantly makes people still hesitate about an authentic Super Fight match between the 2 most talented fighters in each weight class.
That is why Stipe believes that meeting and defeating Jon Jones is indispensable when he successfully defends the belt at UFC 252.
“Of course, I totally agree it was a great match for both me and Jones. I believe I will end the match with victory in hand, he is in a different weight class, not my forte. That’s why I believe I will do well. ” – Miocic confidently said.
Not only Stipe, a lot of the audience wants Jones to be heavy, where there are good bodybuilders and powerful Boxing skills, one of Jones’ inherent engravings.
With Francis Ngannou, Daniel Cormier or the previous generation of boxers like Alistair Overreem, Junior Dos Santos, Stipe Miocic have shown the bravery of a technical punch, smart, hard-headed and comprehensive.
Although, compared to the body, Stipe Miocic is still inferior to Jon Jones in stride (80 inches compared to 84 inches of Jones).
However, the firefighter from Cleveland has much better Boxing skills and stamina than the boxers who made it difficult for Jon Jones like Dominick Reyes, Thiago Santos or Alexander Gustafsson.
Although confident, but to be able to face Jon Jones, Stipe Miocic still needs to ensure the No. 1 position in his heavyweight, ahead of Daniel Cormier ahead at UFC 252 here.
In addition, there is another boxer waiting to compete for the title of “The Predator” Francis Ngannou – the boxer who failed before Stipe is anxious to revenge. On the Jones side, the heavyweight champion has not reappeared since UFC 247 with controversial results against Dominick Reyes. Currently, President Dana White has not revealed any plans for him this year.
