Former UFC champion Henry Cejudo has given his honest prediction for the speculated matchup between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic. Yesterday the news of the fight between former light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic was out and was rumored to be taking place soon. UFC President Dana White said in his last interview that the UFC has amazing fights lined up for the summer and said that a fight between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic makes perfect sense considering the status of the heavyweight division.
“I was just telling somebody the other day, our lineup for this summer is incredible,” White said. “So I’m hoping Jon Jones is going to be part of that lineup this summer. … Stipe makes sense.”
Henry Cejudo picks Jon Jones over Stipe Miocic
“I love this fight for Jon just because everything that Stipe has, Jon is better at,” Cejudo said on “The Triple C & Schmo Show.” “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’s 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.”
“Jon’s coming out here with a different perspective,” Cejudo said. “His perspective now is to bring back the Jonny Jones that was putting out Lyoto Machida, Shogun Rua, when he went on that rampage of just killing the elite. That spirit in him is gonna be awoken if it is that he fights in July.”
