I won't be surprised if Jones loses to Stipe. Miocic has very good boxing, a good wrestling base and decent power. Good conditioning too. Jones has garbage boxing, doesn't do well against big tall guys, and doesn't really possess the tools required to Miocic away. I'll be taking Stipe in this one.

I heard Jones is fighting Santos, which I prefer. I may be in the minority here, but I don’t want Jones to fight T HW right now. He has the frame of a LHW, as he’s a pretty skinny dude. The division finally got his legit (like it or him or not fellas) back. You have two thin divisions already, why put them on hold more so than they have been..especially with trash fights/rumors like Brock. I have no interest in that **** personally. Clear out Santos, Reyes and possibly Walker (with top 5 win) then see where the division is at. Then maybe go up but when/if he does I’d like to see it be a full time move.  I’m sure this isn’t a popular opinion, but I own it. Just my take on all this super fight ****.

I definitely won't mind seeing miocic fight again it's been way to long.
I don't like  super fights that cause divisions to be held up. But jones did defend his lightheavy belt already so...
 I guess im ok with this. Unless he stays at heavyweight that would be weak.

Well I think you people are ******* crazy for writing off Maretta. If Jones wasn't trying to win by decision in his last fight, which I think he was because he bet on himself to win that way, then this is an extremely close fight. Santos can KO anyone. He's also a BJJ blackbelt, and Jones will be fighting clean.

Maretta got KOed by David Branch last year and Jones has dominated everyone, not to mention Jones will apparently never really be clean because he's "pulsing".

@fish but you forget jone's most powerful weapons are his height and reach and unorthodox strikes 
(not including pico grams) marreta will surely struggle with that. I don't think stipe will.
But of course who knows what will ever happen in a mma fight.

@pillory branch is an extremely dangerous striker for 1 round. He's way more dangerous than Jones with his hands. He's lost two fights in like 15, and those were to cannoneer and Rockhold, not exactly bums. Not like he's a can. Jones should be favored but I won't be shocked if Maretta finishes him.
