“I get it. I’d really feel the identical method however I’m not taking something away from him. The UFC can do what they need. It’s what it’s. There’s just one man I need to battle, it’s Jon Jones. However on the identical time, the UFC can choose who they need. Folks don’t know this, however there have been a few different occasions the place I used to be able to battle him and so they gave him one other man. What am I alleged to do? I’m not holding up any division like everybody says. I don’t care. Do what you need and cease crying. I’m not saying he’s crying. I’m simply saying like followers and stuff like that.”

As for the battle between himself and ‘Bones’, Stipe Miocic continued:

“Everybody thinks he’s going to beat my ass. I don’t like being informed that. I like shutting folks up. He’s beatable. I do know he’s. Anybody is beatable and I would be the first to do that. I believe I’ve a mode that doesn’t match effectively along with his type. If the shoe’s on the opposite foot, it may very well be me as effectively. He does quite a lot of good issues. He’s good along with his distance, his leg kicks and on the bottom. I’m good at making it a battle. I’m technical however I may make it into the brawl and make him really feel actually uncomfortable as does he. I believe it is dependent upon who does what they like. Sadly, I don’t like being informed what to take action I’m going to do what I need to.”
