In the world of mixed martial arts, there are fights that come along that capture the imagination of fans and become almost mythical in stature. One such fight that has had the combat sports community buzzing is the potential showdown between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic. Both fighters are considered among the greatest of all time in their respective weight classes, and a match between them would be a historic event.
However, as fate would have it, an unfortunate injury to Jon Jones has put the fight on hold. Jones suffered a torn pectoral muscle, which will require around eight months of recovery, followed by additional time to get back into fighting shape. This puts the timeline for the fight at around a year from now, and even then, it’s uncertain if the fight will happen at all.

The delay has led to some frustration among fans, with some even calling Stipe Miocic a “bitch” for not taking another fight in the meantime. However, it’s important to remember that Jon Jones is a national hero and has nothing left to prove in the sport. He has already secured his place in history as the greatest heavyweight champion of all time, with the most title defenses in the division.
Jones and Miocic both have their reasons for wanting the fight, and it’s not just about the money or the glory. It’s about proving who is the greatest fighter of all time, and that’s something that can’t be rushed. The fans may be disappointed, but they need to understand that this is a fight that needs to happen on the fighters’ terms, not theirs.
