With reports everywhere that Jon Jones will be returning to the octagon for a fight against Stipe Miocic, Daniel Cormier believes Jon will be having a size advantage over Stipe despite moving up a weight class.

Daniel Cormier in the new episode of his show “DC&RC” said that he believes Jon Jones will be a lot bigger than he is and a fight between him and Stipe is an evenly matched fight.

DC said: “I believe that this is an evenly matched fight because I’ve been in there with both of the guys, Jones has different weapons than Miocic, but Miocic has some crazy weapons himself. For a big guy, he does a lot of things really, really well, and what I believe that is interesting in the matchup also is that Jones will be the 205-pounder coming up.”

He added, “Stipe is a lifetime heavyweight, (but) Jones will be bigger because if you look at Jones now. He’s a big boy, and Miocic has been slim for a while.”
