Former UFC double champion Daniel Cormier believes that the league's interim heavyweight champion Tom Aspinall will remain as champion for years to come.
Tom Aspinall is the guy that’s going to lead the heavyweight division for years to come, so yes, I believe that he should be the undisputed champ. Jones is the undisputed champion. He earned that in the octagon by beating Ciryl Gane. But if he’s only going to fight Stipe, and that’s not for another, what, eight months, seven months? I think you put Tom Aspinall as the champ and I don’t think anyone would bat an eyelid.
Aspinall knocked out Sergei Pavlovich in the first round at UFC 295 in November 2023 to become the interim heavyweight division champion. He has 14 wins and three losses on his record.
Jones last stepped into the octagon against Ciryl Gane in March 2023 at UFC 285. In this confrontation, Jones won by first-round choke hold and won the heavyweight championship belt. He has 27 wins and one loss on his record.
Miocic's last fight was in March 2021 against Francis Ngannou at UFC 260. This fight was stopped in the second round and ended with Stipe losing by knockout. He has 20 wins and four losses on his record.White: Jones vs Miocic Fight Has To Happen Page vs Doumbe Fight In The Works At PFL The Ultimate Fighter Show Weight Divisions Announced
