On November 11, the MMA world will hold its breath as heavyweight kings Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic will clash in a title fight at the classic Madison Square Garden in New York.
“It’s what the fans want to see. It’s a fight he wanted, a fight I wanted. Two of the best going at it, nothing gets better than that,” Miocic recently said about the highly anticipated fight.
The former champion believes his speed, angles and punching power will quite literally give “Johnny Bones” some serious headache at MSG.
“I hit a lot harder than people think. I think I have a great IQ. I always change it up and when something happens, I’ll figure a way out,” Miocic said.
Stipe Miocic keeps on adding weight
The former two-time heavyweight champion is right now focusing on adding weight before the huge fight at UFC 295.
“I used to be around 240-ish, and the [Daniel Cormier] fights, I just kept losing weight. I don’t know. I was eating a ton of food, I just kept losing it,” Miocic claimed.
Jones weighed at 248 pounds in his heavyweight debut back in March, and the former champion intends to match that.
“So we changed some things up in my camp and I’m eating a lot more and doing the right things. I’m definitely over 240, so 245,” Miocic said.
