|Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic
After successful events in Australia and Abu Dhabi, the mixed martial arts leader is set to return to New York City for a highly anticipated pay-per-view card at Madison Square Garden. The main event of UFC 295 will feature Jon Jones, a former two-time light heavyweight champion, defending his heavyweight title for the first time. His opponent, Stipe Miocic, is a divisional great looking to reclaim the belt after a knockout defeat to Francis Ngannou earlier this year.
The Backup Role
In preparation for the event, a backup athlete has been announced for the main event. Sergei Pavlovich, the #1-ranked contender, will weigh in as the third man on November 11. Many believed Pavlovich should have been given the first shot at Jones when there was uncertainty surrounding Miocic’s status. The Russian fighter has risen to the top of the rankings with an impressive six-fight winning streak, all ending in first-round knockouts.
The Road to UFC 295
Jones made his return to the octagon earlier this year, winning the vacant heavyweight belt with a dominant performance against Ciryl Gane. His victory set the stage for the highly anticipated clash with Miocic, who has been on a prolonged break since his defeat to Ngannou. Both fighters are eager to prove themselves as the true champion of the heavyweight division.
