Jon Jones responds to Stipe Miocic’s KO win over Daniel Cormier

You just knew that Jon Jones would have something to say following Stipe Miocic’s fourth round knockout win over Daniel Cormier in the main event at UFC 241, although it was giving more praise to the new champion as opposed to shade thrown at his rival.

After three hard rounds, which MyMMANews.com scored for Cormier across the board, Miocic gained momentum and used his range, along with a barrage of nasty shots to the body, to set up the finish of the fight to recapture the UFC heavyweight title. The event took place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. in front of a sell out crowd.

Following Miocic’s win, Jones took to Twitter to give a simple statement about the greatness of Miocic as a fighter, and a champion.

“Stipe is hands down the greatest heavyweight of all-time,” Jones stated. “I have nothing else left to say.”

Although, in classic Jon Jones fashion, he did have more to say.

“Now we can stop playing games with these pound for pound rankings already,” stated the UFC light heavyweight champion.

As expected, a lot of the chatter heading into Saturday night’s was in regards to a potential trilogy fight between Cormier and Jones, especially if “DC” were to retain his title. That did not happen, seemingly closing the door on that potential chapter. In addition, Cormier’s fighting future is still an unanswered question. Following the loss, Cormier was asked about his future by Joe Rogan.

“I need to speak to my wife and we need to make an educated decision on what I need to do,” Cormier said in his post-fight interview on what is next following the loss.

Miocic evened the score with the win and the question is, what is next for the, once again, heavyweight champion? Does he run it back with Cormier one more time? Or does he run it back with the ferocious Francis Ngannou?
