Henry Cejudo doesn’t appear to like Stipe Miocic’s chances against Jon Jones.
Jon Jones hasn’t had a bout since Feb. 2020 but he may finally be on the verge of returning. UFC President Dana White expressed to TMZ Sports that he feels Jones vs. Miocic for the interim UFC Heavyweight Championship makes sense. MMAJunkie.com later reported that Stipe has been offered the fight.
Stipe Miocic A Cakewalk For Jon Jones, Says Henry Cejudo
If Stipe Miocic vs. Jon Jones actually takes place, Henry Cejudo thinks it’ll be one-way traffic for “Bones.” Taking to the Triple C & Schmo Show, Cejudo explained why he thinks Jones would have an easy time with Miocic (h/t MMAJunkie).
“I love this fight for Jon just because everything that Stipe has, Jon is better at. If he was fighting a Francis Ngannou, I was a little more cautious with that one just because of pure power and when you have somebody that has scary power like that, it’s a strength that kinda overwhelms whomever. You got power, but Francis Ngannou power is different.
“But with the Stipe fight, I like it for Jon. I think it’s gonna allow Jon to really work on everything – like mixed martial arts as a whole, not just sticking to one base. So at the end of the day, I think it’s easy money for Jon Jones.”
Miocic hasn’t competed since he was knocked out by Francis Ngannou back in March 2021. As mentioned, Jones’ last fight was back in Feb. 2020 when he defeated Dominick Reyes in his final bout as the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.
