In a recent interview with ‘Fox Sports Australia’, Jones said, “I have no opponent to fight anymore, I am old, and I have suffered big and small injuries from a long martial arts fight. I think this will be my last match.”
Jones will make his first defense against two-time heavyweight title holder Miocic at UFC 290 in July.
Miocic lost the title in March 2021 to Francis Ngannou by KO, but is considered the strongest heavyweight champion in history.
However, it is not easy to deal with Jones as he has only been in the Octagon for two years and has reached the age of 40.
Jones, who is confident of victory, said, “My goal right now is to fight Stipe Miocic in a big fight at Madison Square Garden in New York, then wear the belt and go down the octagon.”메이저놀이터
But Jones said he could fight one more time if former champion Francis Nga returned.
Ngannou, who defeated Miocic to become champion, left the UFC after making his first defense against Cyril Gane.
The confrontation between the two legends is literally a battle of dragons and tigers, but Jones is better in terms of the battle against Cyril Gane. Ngannou won five rounds by decision, but Jones won his first heavyweight fight three years after surrendering the light heavyweight title by submission in one minute and 40 seconds.
“A fight with Miocic is enough, but Ngannu is worth enjoying instead of retiring,” said Han Jones, showing enthusiasm for Sergei Pavlovic, a knockout artist who won six times in a row and one KO, saying, “I have no motivation.” did not
“I want to be with my children. I am now an ‘old warrior’. There are many painful places. I am proud of my career.”
Jones seems to have really decided to retire, but looking at his physical strength and age (35), he is in a situation where he can run enough, so it is not yet known whether he will leave without a fight after the Miocic match.
