Jon “Bones” Jones is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. He is taking on former champion and arguably the heavyweight UFC GOAT Stipe Miocic. Fans were thrilled about the matchup but were even more surprised by the ticket price. One fan wrote on X, formerly Twitter, “Jon Jones retirement fight in the Mecca is as big of money as it gets. The highest ticket price for the event is $112,236.80. It is now the highest ticket price in UFC history. Jon Jones won the title vacated by Francis Ngannou by beating Ciryl Gane at UFC 285. Furthermore, rumors suggest that the former light heavyweight champion would retire after UFC 295.

The heavyweight division of the UFC is on a new beginning. The young talent occupying the division’s top spots is waiting for their title opportunity. With Jon Jones rumored to retire, the likes of Sergei Pavlovich, Ciryl Gane, Tom Aspinall, and Jailton Almeida are waiting in the wings. Stipe Miocic has not fought since he lost the title to Francis Ngannou via a devastating KO. Jones is the favorite in the fight, even though he has only fought once in the division.

Stipe Miocic is the arguable UFC heavyweight GOAT in the UFC. The former champion has patiently waited in the wings following his loss to Ngannou. Miocic was calling for a trilogy with Ngannou before the Cameroonian left the UFC for PFL. Miocis along with Jon Jones, are the only fighters to hold a victory over former double champion Daniel Cormier.

Fans react to the Jon Jones-led UFC 295 PPV price

Jones is interested only in fighting to preserve his legacy. It is the reason why he is fighting an old Stipe Miocic because Miocic has name value. Jones is not interested in fighting Tom Aspinall or Sergei Pavlovich, whom only the hardcore fans know about. More than the event itself, fans are surprised by the ticket price of UFC 295. Fans are bewildered after knowing about the price and have posted interesting comments on X, formerly Twitter. See the response of the fans below.

Fans have a hilarious response to the ticket price of UFC 295. Some deem it too high for a fight that may end in the first round. One fan wants Shavkat Rakhmonov to be on the card. Some are okay with the price, but only if it has a good undercard. Another fan thinks it was worthy of a Jon Jones fight. Sergei Pavlovich is the backup fighter for UFC 295. Pavlovich is on a winning streak, all coming via finish in the first round. The Russian fighter lost his UFC debut to Alistair Overeem but has been invincible since.
