Stipe Miocic on fighting Jon Jones

Recently on The JAXXON Podcast, Stipe Miocic shared his thoughts on fighting Jon Jones.

“You’re damn right, that’s what I want,” Miocic said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I’m going to wait. I don’t care. I want that fight. Tom’s a good champion. He’s a great champion, he’s tough – not up-and-coming, but young and hungry.

We’ll get to that road when we have to, but I want Jon Jones. I don’t care about the title – I just want to fight Jon Jones. It can be just me and him fighting. … Just don’t let him dictate what he wants – any fight, not just Jon Jones.

Don’t let them dictate what they want to do. You let them do what they want, then that’s the end of the road for you. You’re * ”.
