Jon Jones Is Not Interested in the Stipe Miocic Fight, says coach

Jones currently has no interest in fighting Stipe Miocic for his heavyweight debut, according to his coach Mike Winkeljohn.

Last week, UFC president Dana White revealed that Stipe Miocic had accepted a proposed fight with Jon Jones, but Winkeljohn coach thinks that “The Silencer” is not viewed as a challenge.

“From the outside looking in, I would think that wouldn’t excite Jon.” Winkeljohn told Submission Radio “I think Jon wants the big one. He wants to get the big one, he wants the big challenge, and right now Stipe’s not there. Stipe is awesome, don’t get me wrong, but Jon wants the biggest challenge out there. That’s how Jon Jones thinks,”

“That’s just me talking. For me it doesn’t seem that exciting for Jon, it doesn’t make sense. It makes sense to go after the title. Because honestly Jon is the best pound-for-pound of all time, so why would he have just a normal fight? Unless we felt we needed that to get used to our new body. I don’t think we need that, I think Jon is already getting used to his new size, so there is not a necessity to take a step up fight. Jon is ready to go, he wants the challenge.”
