Stipe Miocic promises trouble for Jon Jones

Former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic isn’t the least bit embarrassed by the fact that he will go into his title fight against Jon Jones as a four-time underdog.

“It took a while, but I stopped caring about other people’s opinions a long time ago – I just don’t care,” Miocic told BetOnline. “Do you think I’m going to lose? If you bet against me, you’re going to lose a lot of money. So I apologize in advance, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

According to Miocic, he has no doubt that his skills will be a problem for his opponent, and he is ready for any development in this fight.

“I think my speed, angles, and punching power will be a problem for Jones. I punch harder than people think. I have a great fight IQ. I’m always willing to change tactics if something goes wrong and find a way out. This fight means everything to me. The fans wanted it, John wanted it, and I wanted it. Two of the best in the business – what could be better than that?”

As a reminder, the heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic will be the main event of UFC 295, which takes place on November 11 in New York City.
