Former UFC heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic, did not ignore the news that on March 4 at UFC 285 in Las Vegas, Jon Jones and Cyril Gan will play for the vacant title vacated by Francis Ngannou, who left the organization.
March 4 – I like it. I will fight the winner in July,” Miocic wrote on the social network.
Stipe Miocic last entered the octagon in March 2021, losing by knockout to Francis Ngannou in the second round and losing the UFC heavyweight championship belt.
Before losing to the Cameroonian, the American won the title trilogy against his compatriot Daniel Cormier 2-1.
Despite a long absence, 40-year-old Stipe Miocic continues to rank second in the organization’s heavyweight division ranking, one position behind France’s Cyril Gan and one line ahead of Russia’s Sergei Pavlovich.
