Jones is fresh off his UFC Heavyweight Title triumph over Ciryl Gane in the main event of UFC 285, where he submitted the French MMA star in the first round to capture another belt. But the now-consensus MMA GOAT has set his sight on another opponent during his post-fight interview.
When is Jon Jones’ Next Fight?
During Jones’ post-fight interview inside the Octagon, he called out Stipe Miocic for his next fight. Miocic, the former heavyweight title holder, seemed to accept Jones’ callout and a verbal agreement was seen. There is no official announcement yet from the UFC, but it is likely the next big heavyweight title fight to make.

Jon Jones Team and Corner
Jon Jones was a tenured member of the Jackson-Wink MMA in New Mexico, where he trained under coach and co-owner Mike Winkeljohn. However, after his arrest due to domestic violence in September 2021, “Bones” was banned from the gym by Winkeljohn himself.
This prompted Jones to look for another team and found a new home with Jackson’s MMA Acoma, which is also situated in New Mexico. Jones is now guided by its owner and head coach Nick Urso.
