Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones is ready for his comeback fight and is also willing to wait for the former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic. Jon Jones has recently been rumored to fight Stipe Miocic during the summer of 2022. Jon Jones has made multiple callouts of Stipe and has stated that he wants to make a fight between the greatest heavyweight of all-time against the greatest light-heavyweight of all time. UFC President Dana White in one of his latest interviews said that the fight between former champions Stipe Miocic and Jon Jones makes sense.

“Listen, people have been talking about how awesome this card is, and I was just telling somebody the other day our lineup for this summer is incredible, so I’m hoping that Jon Jones is gonna be a part of that lineup this summer,” White said to TMZ Sports… “Stipe makes sense (for Jones).”

Now Jon Jones has reacted to the recent news that Stipe Miocic will be ready to fight in the month of September.

“Stipe is saying that he will be at his absolute peak in September. I’m disappointed but patient, I want the heavyweight goat at his absolute best. I’ll wait until September. No excuses,” Jones wrote on Twitter.

Recently Jon Jones had hinted that he wants to fight the greatest heavyweight of all time, Stipe Miocic.

“The greatest heavyweight of all-time versus the greatest light heavyweight, who wants to see it? I’m game”

Stipe Miocic had also expressed his interest in fighting Jon Jones.

“I would have loved to have been asked,” Miocic said about the interim title fight snub when appearing on The MMA Hour. “I feel like I understand what the UFC’s doing, it’s a business, but at the same time I think that I deserved a trilogy fight.”

“I wasn’t even asked for the interim fight. Who knows if I would have taken it but just it would have been nice to be asked. Just toes in the water. I don’t know [if I would have taken it]. We don’t know. It’s over with.”

“Listen, I’m used to it,” Miocic said. “It is what it is. It’s business. I get it but at the same time, I feel like I was deserving of a trilogy fight. Everyone else has gotten one but me.”
