MMA Junkie has reported that that former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic has been offered an interim heavyweight championship fight for UFC 276, and his opponent would be Jon Jones.
UFC president Dana White appears to have something in mind.
“I was just telling somebody the other day, our lineup for this summer is incredible,” White told TMZ. “So I’m hoping Jon Jones is going to be part of that lineup this summer… Stipe makes sense.”
Jones last fight was in February 2020 against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247, where “Bones” won via unanimous decision to retain the light heavyweight championship.
Jones would vacate the world title six months later.
Miocic last fought at UFC 260 in Mar 2021, where he relinquished the heavyweight belt to Ngannou in a rematch via knockout.
