Stipe Miocic says he’s down to fight anyone — including Jon Jones — but right now, his focus is on getting his belt back from Daniel Cormier.
Stipe is looking to avenge his July 2018 loss to Cormier at UFC 226 … when Cormier ended Stipe’s 6-fight win streak in a crushing 1st round knockout.
The two will get back in the Octagon on August 17 at UFC 241 … and Stipe is GUARANTEEING VICTORY telling TMZ Sports straight-up, “I’m going to win.”
So, what’s next? We asked Stipe if he would be interested in fighting Jon Jones … who’s discussed moving up to heavyweight — and Stipe told us he’s down to fight ANYONE.
But, he made it perfectly clear he’s not flirting with future fights … his sites are set squarely on DC
Cormier is the slight betting favorite going into the fight after being a heavy underdog the first time around.
Here’s what we do know … whoever wins this fight is PROBABLY looking at a scrap with Jon somewhere down the line.
