Stipe Miocic, the former UFC heavyweight champion, was set to make his return to the octagon at UFC 295 . However, a surprising twist in the story has left fans wondering when they will see Miocic back in action.

The highly anticipated event, scheduled for November 11 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, was supposed to feature a title fight between Miocic and current champion Jon Jones. But UFC CEO Dana White dropped a bombshell when he announced that Jones had suffered a torn pectoral muscle during training, forcing him to withdraw from the fight.

This unexpected turn of events has left Miocic without an opponent and out of the event for undisclosed reasons. Instead, the co-main event will now showcase top heavyweight contenders Sergei Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall vying for the interim championship.

The news sparked a lively conversation among the MMA community, with former UFC fighter Dan Hardy initiating the discussion on social media. Fans and experts alike are speculating on whether Miocic will ever step back into the octagon.

While some believe that Miocic’s absence from the card hints at his retirement, others think that he may still have a chance to fight for the interim belt. UFC commentator Jon Anik weighed in, acknowledging the financial incentive for Miocic but also noting that time may not be on his side.

The uncertainty surrounding Miocic’s future has left fans eagerly awaiting his return. The former two-time UFC heavyweight champion, known for his impressive title defenses, holds a career MMA record of 20 wins, with 15 victories via KO/TKO.
