Jones to return against Stipe Miocic?

Dana White declared that Jones would be back in the Octagon against Miocic at the UFC St. Louis post-fight press conference. The UFC head honcho said, “Yeah, it’s Stipe.

Not only does the boss think that Jones is the best Pound 4 Pound fighter in the world, but he is also excited for this comeback. The former heavyweight champion also hinted that his fight might be on November 9 in Madison Square Garden. Along with this, he also might have hinted that this might be his last fight before he retires.

One silver lining in all of this is that the GOAT has more than one option to choose from because Tom Aspinall has already shown his interest in fighting the legend. Along with that Alex Pereira’s name is also in the mix since he just won at UFC 303. Do you think Jon Jones might win against Miocic? Let us know in the comments!
