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.
