Stipe Miocic Drops Bombshell: Will He Battle Jon Jones? UFC 295 in Jeopardy!

Former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic is gearing up for his highly anticipated fight against Jon Jones in the main event of UFC 295 on November 11th at Madison Square Garden. Miocic, the longest reigning UFC heavyweight champion of all time, is excited about the opportunity to reclaim the throne against what many consider to be the greatest fighter of all time.

In a recent interview, Miocic discussed the significance of this fight, the opponent, and the venue. He expressed his excitement about fighting on Veterans Day at Madison Square Garden, calling it a check on his bucket list. Miocic has fought in various locations around the world, but this fight holds a special place for him.

Miocic also talked about how this fight came together. After Jones won the heavyweight title against Cyril Gane in March, he called out Miocic, targeting him as his next opponent. Miocic was in the front row when he witnessed Jones’ first heavyweight performance and acknowledged that Jones made quick work of Gane. Miocic didn’t have to do much to make this fight happen, as Jones called him out. Miocic was happy with that because he knew that after his last fight against Francis Ngannou in 2021, everyone was focused on a potential matchup between him and Jones.

When asked if he believed two and a half years ago that he would be fighting Jones for the heavyweight title at Madison Square Garden, Miocic admitted that he didn’t think it was possible at the time. There were a lot of factors at play, including Ngannou still being in the picture and the constant changes in direction for potential matchups. However, when Jones called him out, everything fell into place.

Miocic emphasized that every fight is the biggest fight of his career, including this one against Jones. He believes that every fight is a stepping stone and a hurdle that he needs to overcome. While this fight is undoubtedly significant for his legacy, he approaches each fight with the same level of focus and determination.

The year 2021 has been a strange one for the sport, with many upsets and underdogs coming out on top. When asked how he thinks this fight will go down at Madison Square Garden, Miocic confidently stated that when fans see him walking out with the belt wrapped around his waist, they will find out quickly how the fight went.

Miocic was also asked about Jones’ comments regarding this potentially being his last fight if he wins and solidifies his legacy. Miocic didn’t give a definitive answer but stated that he is currently focused on the November 11th fight and will figure out his future after that.

The interview then shifted to Miocic’s collaboration with Buffalo Wild Wings. They are teaming up to give one lucky fan the opportunity to witness the fight between Miocic and Jones live at Madison Square Garden. The winner will receive the VIP treatment and the whole shebang. To enter the contest, fans must take the Blazing KO Challenge at a Buffalo Wild Wings location. The challenge involves eating nine of the hottest wings within five minutes, without water or napkins. Participants must then post a video of themselves completing the challenge on Instagram, tagging Miocic and Buffalo Wild Wings with the hashtag #blazingKOcontest. The lucky winner will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to UFC 295 and get to witness the fight between Miocic and Jones firsthand.

Miocic jokingly mentioned that he couldn’t handle the heat of the Blazing Challenge himself, but he recommended trying the mild garlic Parmesan flavor instead. He also shared that he had been working on his strength and had put on some weight for this fight. He feels better than ever and is confident heading into the matchup against Jones.

In conclusion, Stipe Miocic is eagerly preparing for his fight against Jon Jones at UFC 295. This fight holds great significance for Miocic, as he looks to reclaim the heavyweight title and solidify his legacy. The opportunity to fight at Madison Square Garden on Veterans Day is a dream come true for Miocic. He didn’t initially believe that this fight would be possible, but when Jones called him out, everything fell into place. Miocic approaches every fight with the same level of focus and determination, considering each one to be the biggest fight of his career. He is excited about his collaboration with Buffalo Wild Wings, offering fans the chance to win a VIP experience at UFC 295. With his dedication to training and his confidence in his abilities, Miocic is ready to put on a show and walk out of Madison Square Garden with the belt around his waist.

all right let us say hello to the former
UFC heavyweight champion the longest
reigning UFC heavyweight champion of all
time and a man looking to reclaim the
throne against the man many considered
to be the greatest fighter of all time
he faces Jon Jones in the main event of
UFC 295 November 11th at Madison Square
Garden he is stie miic and he’s teaming
up with Buffalo Wild Wings for something
pretty darn cool and we’ll get into that
in a little bit so stay tuned Stipe how
are you sir thank you for doing this
yeah that was a great hype up man wow
that was awesome you’ve done this before
I have the radio background all of that
but I get it man great job great job oh
thank you uh listen we’re a little over
a month away from you headlining Madison
Square Garden the mecca against John
freaking Jones and you’ve gotten to do a
lot of cool things in your career been a
part of a lot of big fights but how
special is this opportunity for you
considering the opponent the event and
the fact that it’s happening in Madison
Square Garden I mean it doesn’t get any
better than that especially it’s a
veterans Veterans Day I mean just it’s
just I don’t know it’s uh you like I
always I’ve been saying it’s you know
it’s a check on the bucket list you I
got to fight Boston TD Gardens you know
I got to play you know all over Vegas uh
Brazil Australia Canada I mean I go for
days and but yeah this is that this G be
awesome you didn’t even really have to
do a whole lot for this fight to come
together because John basically targeted
you he called you out after he won the
title against serial gar in March what
did you think of Jon’s first heavyweight
performance I’m sure you watching quite
closely made quick work of seral gone
and then in the end it was steep a bust
yeah I mean yeah I was right front row
when I saw it um I mean yeah he’s did
his job he went there and got the hand
rais that’s what you got to do that’s
quick nights are the best
nights after your last fight against
Francis and ganu in 2021 if I told you
hey Stipe no worries because when you
come back in the cage two and a half
years later you’re going to fight Jon
Jones for the heavyweight title at
Madison Square Garden would you believe
me did you think that was possible
possible two and a half years ago uh no
I think there was a lot going on I think
it was just tough because you know
France was still around and then they
were trying to work that together and
then he laugh and they’re trying to make
me and Jon Jones fight and then every
time we they we figure it out they moved
to a different direction and made a lot
easier when he called me out so I was
happy with that because I know like
after that fight it was July that’s what
everyone was kind of focused on you guys
are kind of going back and forth on
social media right did you start to get
nervous like maybe it wouldn’t happen
after the July thing kind of fell apart
and and the months were going by or were
you confident that this was going to be
the fight no matter what oh no I was I
was good I knew I I I wasn’t
worried big I mean this has to be the
biggest fight of your career right right
like when you think of Legacy what this
means to you no no question but also I
think I think I’ve been saying like
every fight no matter what it is it’s
your biggest fight so last one was great
but this is even bigger so I think you
know you know I fight again that fight’s
going be the biggest fight I think
because you know it’s always always a
stepping stone always a hurdle you got
to get over so I think every fight every
new fight you have is the biggest fight
of your
life this and I’m sure you’ve been
paying attention has been one of the
weirdest years in the history of the
sport like upset score big underdogs are
coming through and just shocking people
left in right how does this one go down
at MSG against Jon Jones to I guess add
to that list of Challengers coming in as
big underdogs and and playing
spoiler well when you see me walking out
with a belt wrapped in the ways heing
that new you’re G to find out real quick
fair enough and we’ve heard Jon say a
number of times since he won the title
that he was going to fight you and if he
wins that will be enough for him to
cement his legacy to the point where he
would walk away and feel like he
accomplished everything he needed to in
his career I’m curious do you view this
fight in a similar manner like if you
beat Jon Jones and Madison Square Garden
you know I’m just gonna come out and ask
do you feel like this could be the final
fight of your career have you thought
that far I thought about that after my
first UFC
he not retiring so but right now like
right I’m focused on November 11 that’s
all I care about and then you know once
I’m done I’ll be I’ll figure it out fair
I mean what else would be left for you
though I mean like you you have your
family you have all these heavyweight
accolades you’re a firefighter and my
dad is a retired firefight after doing
the job for 35 years in the bosset area
job he says is the best job in the world
tells me that every single day on top of
that you’d have a win over the greatest
of all time in most people’s eyes like
what else do you think you would need to
do I’ll we go to Buffalo W wings and go
get some
wings you you call me a pro you’re a pro
because you segwayed into this perfectly

you for the time I appreciate it very
much I knew how how by the way can I
just ask you one more thing Daniel
Cormier said he’s seen you and you look
better than ever because you obviously
slimmed down for some of those fights
and he said you put on a bunch more and
you put some of that weight back on he
says you look better than ever can you
talk about that a little bit and and do
you feel better than ever heading into
this fight yeah you know it’s just a lot
of wings you
know no I definitely just worked on like
lifting heavier and just working on you
know not just like conditioning wise
more just strengthwise too you know I’ve
always been strong and working on
strength but I really sat back and just
took some time to L some weights and at
one point I was I was 255 uh you know
but when Camp really started taking off

so hopefully I’m my 245 250 for the
fight I feel for I feel great honestly I

compact more strong of course stronger I
should be um but I feel better in
