Dana White Says They Were Considering Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic

Just after it was announced that Jon Jones had tested positive for an anabolic steroid. UFC President, Dana White spoke with the media and shared a bombshell story. He stated the UFC was considering a superfight between Light Heavyweight Champion, Jones and current UFC Heavyweight Champion, Miocic. White stated the fight could have headlined UFC 218 on December 2nd in Detroit, Michigan.

The proposed fight seems impossible now after Jones failed an in-competition drug test for UFC 214. Jones is now provisionally suspended and is expected to be out for a very long time. He tested positive for the anabolic steroid, Turinabol.

Jones defeated Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 and won the UFC Light Heavyweight title. Jones is expected to be stripped of his title.
