Daniel Cormier believes his biggest rival will be bigger than Stipe Miocic when they fight.

The whispers of Jon Jones returning to action after being out for the last two years are getting real. Last week it was reported that Jones vs. Miocic is being targeted for International Fight Week 2022 at UFC 276.

It will be the first time Jones fights at heavyweight, and he has taken the time to put on some actual size over the last two years.

Big Boy

On Tuesday’s episode of DC & RC, Cormier said that Jones will be bigger than his opponent when they step inside the cage. Having fought both of them two separate times, it’s safe to say the former two-division UFC champion knows what he is talking about.

“I believe that this is an evenly matched fight because I’ve been in there with both of the guys. Jones has different weapons than Miocic, but Miocic has some crazy weapons himself. For a big guy, he does a lot of things really, really well, and what I believe that is interesting in the matchup also is that Jones will be the 205-pounder coming up,” Cormier said.

“Stipe is a lifetime heavyweight, [but] Jones will be bigger because if you look at Jones now, on social media, he’s a big boy, and Miocic has been slim for a while. So a lot of different storylines play into this one because does Stipe put on weight? Does Stipe stay small? Does Jones get smaller as he approaches the fight? It’s a fantasic fight.”

Many questions will be answered in the coming weeks about the size of the two fighters.

Miocic has been out of action since losing the heavyweight belt to Francis Ngannou at UFC 260 last March. While Jones has been out of action since UFC 247 when he beat Dominic Reyes via split decision in one of the most hotly debated fights in recent years. Jones vacated his light heavyweight belt in August of 2020 after holding it since 2011.
