Former UFC two-division champion Henry Cejudo believes that Jon Jones will easily overcome Stipe Miocic when the former makes his Heavyweight debut.
Whenever there is a conversation about who the GOAT of the MMA world is, for many people it’s Jon Jones. With 14 title defenses, Jones is considered the greatest fighter to have ever set foot inside the octagon. But sadly, he has been out of action since 2020 ever since his fight against Dominick Reyes.
While his return to the octagon has been getting delayed for one reason or the other, Jon is scheduled to return this September. The former Light Heavyweight champion will go up a division to Heavyweight. He is set to fight Stipe Miocic.
Miocic, who lost his belt last year to current champion Francis Ngannou, is considered by many as the greatest heavyweight of all time. A match versus Jones thus makes sense, as it is seen as a clash of the titans.
Henry Cejudo, however think differently about ,”That’s easy work for Jon. Jon was holding out for money, but I also think he too needed a break. He also needed to just enjoy life, and see life without having the pressure of people wanting to see him fight; for him to be entertaining to the world. It’s like me. We want to be entertained for once. Just enjoy life, and discover new things.”
UFC fans are very eager to see the official announcement of the fight. How much Jon’s time away from the octagon will help him remains to be seen. But it will be an explosive affair, no doubt!
