After submitting Ciryl Gane in a record-setting time, Jon Jones grabbed the UFC heavyweight belt at UFC 285. Returning to the cage after a three-year-long hiatus, Jones looked absolutely flawless.

Now he is aligned to meet arguably the greatest MMA heavyweight of all time, Stipe Miocic.  Dana White shed his views on that fight in a recent interaction with Mike Tyson on the HotBoxin podcast.

Referring to Jones, the UFC President said, “Jon Jones is one of those guys that when he is gone is when he will really get the credit that he absolutely deserves. He is a bad mother fu**er.  100%.”

Dana White continued, “It could be (Jon Jones’ last fight). Jon’s talking about retirement after that fight (at UFC 295) but we will see what happens, how it plays out. I mean he (Jon Jones) is so fu**ing good. I think it will depend on what challenges are out there for him.”

“After that fight, if he wins, if he can beat Stipe (Miocic). Realistically if you look at it. Stipe is looked at as the greatest heavyweight ever. Jon Jones is the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.”

Stipe Miocic hasn’t fought for over two years since losing the heavyweight crown to Francis Nganou at UFC 260. It remains to be seen whether he can fare well against Jon Jones after such a long span of inactivity.
