‘Triple C’ has come to the aid of the former UFC heavyweight champion. Henry Cejudo in his podcast revealed the strategy that will be effective against ‘Bones’. He revealed, “You’re going to have to wrestle him.”

Furthermore, the former double champion added, “So that’s the only thing that I could see Stipe Miocic doing, because his hands, he’s not faster than Jon. He’s got hands; he did get a chance to stop Cormier with the body shot. Jon’s just different. Jon has a different length. Jon recognizes distance a lot better than somebody like DC. The only plan that I see Stipe Miocic going up against Jon is going to be called wrestling… and good luck with that.”
