UFC Hall of Famer Daniel Cormier provides an in-depth analysis of the upcoming heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic. The highly anticipated UFC 295 headliner is set to take place in November at Madison Square Garden.
Cormier, who faced both Miocic and Jones multiple times during his Hall of Fame career, believes that the outcome of the fight will be determined in the opening seconds of the action. He highlights the importance of observing Miocic’s speed and movement, as well as Jones’ adaptation to the heavyweight division.
According to Cormier, Miocic’s performance against Francis Ngannou a couple of years ago will serve as a benchmark to assess his current abilities. If Miocic remains quick, light on his feet, and fast with his hands, he could pose significant challenges for the new Jon Jones, who has acknowledged a decrease in speed due to his weight gain.
Miocic, who last fought against Ngannou at UFC 260, previously secured back-to-back victories over Cormier. Jones, on the other hand, returned from a three-year hiatus to claim the heavyweight belt at UFC 285 after vacating the light heavyweight title.
This highly anticipated matchup between Jones and Miocic has garnered immense attention within the UFC community. Cormier will closely observe the opening moments of the fight to gauge how the two fighters perform.
