Final Preventing Championship (UFC) President, Dana White, beforehand instructed blended martial arts (MMA) followers that he was planning to e-book Jon Jones vs. Stipe Miocic for the UFC 218 pay-per-view (PPV) occasion in Chicago, till “Bones” blew up his United States Anti-Doping Company (USADA) drug take a look at and acquired despatched to the sidelines.
Sounds just like the bout is again in play, based mostly on this newest tweet from Jones.
I don’t assume you guys are able to witness @stipemiocic and I, would July offer you all sufficient time?

The struggle made sense on the time and would have been contested for Miocic’s heavyweight title. Now, it sounds extra like an arrogance mission for “Bones,” and would require prime gentle heavyweight contender, Thiago Santos, to twiddle his thumbs till the champion returned to his rightful weight class.
Except he received and fought the winner of Daniel Cormier vs. Brock Lesnar.
I can perceive the “DC” trilogy as a result of it provides Cormier his likelihood to retire with a win over his arch nemesis, whereas permitting Jones to hitch the promotion’s “champ champ” membership. Not that we’ve by no means seen a champion transfer as much as struggle a non-champion (Anderson Silva did it twice), however I’m unsure this can be a struggle that does something for me as a fan.
I dunno, perhaps I simply suck.
Nothing is official at the moment, in fact, and Jones would possibly simply be trolling for consideration. However you already know what they are saying about smoke/fireplace and let’s face it, no one besides these closest to “Marreta” could be overly butthurt concerning the reserving.
Let’s simply hope these rattling picograms don’t get in the way in which.
