Miocic on Jones’ Heavyweight Transition: A Reality Check?

Stipe Miocic believes Jon Jones hasn't tasted real heavyweight power yet.

In a candid take, former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic shared his perspective on Jon Jones’ foray into the heavyweight realm, suggesting the star may be in for some surprises.

Ahead of UFC 295, Miocic took a moment to address the media and offer a seasoned viewpoint on Jones’ transition.

“Jon Jones hasn’t felt the power we have in the heavyweight division,”

said Miocic, emphasizing the different dynamics at play in this weight class.

Jones, largely considered one of the greatest MMA fighters, recently made the leap to the heavyweight division, leaving many speculating about his adaptability and resilience against larger opponents.

But it’s not just about power for Miocic. The gloves make a difference too.

“With smaller gloves on, anything can happen,”

he pointed out. This comment underscores the unpredictability of the division, where a single well-placed strike can change the course of a bout.

While Miocic’s words may come across as cautionary, they reflect the depth of experience he carries. His insights offer both a challenge to Jones and a hint of the intense action awaiting fans at UFC 295.

As the MMA community keenly watches Jones’ heavyweight journey, they’re reminded that in this unforgiving division, power and precision reign supreme.
