Weidman than also talked about what is Miocic up to and how will his return look like.
“He [Miocic] was smaller,” says Weidman “I trained with Stipe, he’s [one of] my boys I was hanging out with him last night. Bro, he just got big and he’s been doing it quietly. He’s like a solid 250 right now, and whenever he decides to come back, he’s gonna be a problem, like, I don’t think Jon Jones wants that fight. If he thinks he’s going to be against a 225-pound Stipe, he’s wrong…“ continues Weidman.
