The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight title holder took to his Twitter account to ask fans if they’re ready to see him fight Miocic:

“I don’t think you guys are ready to witness [Stipe Miocic] and I, would July give you all enough time?”

Jones was last seen in action earlier this month. He successfully retained his light heavyweight gold against Anthony Smith in the main event of UFC 235. As for Miocic, he hasn’t fought since a July 2018 knockout loss to Daniel Cormier. Miocic has been calling for a rematch with Cormier, but “DC” is eyeing a big money fight with WWE star Brock Lesnar.
