Daniel Cormier Says Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic Makes ZERO Sense


Daniel Cormier isn’t a fan of a potential heavyweight clash between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic.

The two legends will likely battle at UFC 309, where Jones will put his heavyweight title on the line against the former champion. The two were originally scheduled to battle at UFC 295, but the fight was cancelled after ‘Bones’ had to withdraw due to injury.

UFC 295 was then headlined by the interim heavyweight title fight between Tom Aspinall and Sergei Pavlovich, which the Brit won by first round knockout.

Cormier believes Aspinall deserves a shot at Jones more than other heavyweights in the UFC.

“The toughest fight and the most meaningful fight in all of fighting right now is Jon Jones-Tom Aspinall. I don’t even know at this point if it should be Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic, and I like Stipe,” Cormier said in a recent YouTube video. “Stipe’s a great guy, but at that age, with that much time off — look, I fought until I was 41 and I was relatively active before I had back surgery. I fought three times in 2018 when I was 39 years old because I was healthy.

“To go that long without a fight, and the last fight being a brutal knockout, into a title fight with a guy like Jones? I don’t know,” Cormier continued. “I don’t know what Stipe looks like today. For four years, he’s lived the life of a normal person. Sure, he might go to the gym and train, but Ben, because you’re in there wrestling with those kids every day, does that make you a competitive wrestler still? It doesn’t. Can Stipe still compete at that level, is the question.”
