Gordon Ryan is no stranger to submission, given that he is the best No Gi grappler in the world. After going through a serious illness, he recently made a triumphant return at WNO 20. As such, he also took some time to train with Jon Jones, who seemed ecstatic after catching up with ‘The King’.

Similarly, Jones has predicted a similar finish to his fight against Stipe Miocic at UFC 295 in Madison Square Garden.

Jon Jones claims that he will finish off the former two-time UFC champion in the first round with a submission. “Ladies and gentlemen do not count out a first round submission,” said the reigning champion after training with Gordon Ryan. However, we should not count out what Stipe Miocic could bring to the table.

Ciryl Gane is more of a striker than a wrestler, which cost him the chance to become a champion at UFC 285. However, the same cannot be said for Stipe Miocic. The former two-time champion has wrestled more than he’s boxed. As such, he is one of the most complete fighters in the history of the UFC. We will have to wait and see how things unfold when he finally meets Jones inside the Octagon.
