The UFC 295 was all set to host the UFC Heavyweight Championship fight between champion Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic. But due to a chest injury to Jones, the fight had to be canceled, and even Stipe Miocic didn’t get a title opportunity. Well, looking at the injury and fight cancellation news, fans were quite disappointed and wanted the title to be stripped from Jones’s hand.
Well, not just fans, but several MMA fighters wanted the heavyweight title stripped off. Even several experts said that the title should not be out of action for over a year, as Jones is out for at least six months. Looking at all the questioning and conservation by fans, he didn’t hold back and tweeted out all his anger.
I’ve faced the absolute toughest competition this world had to offer for 15 years now. During camp for a title defense I sustained a major injury that required surgery for the first time in my career. Now I have newcomers requesting I get my championship stripped. Zero wins over…

To be honest, Jon Jones has given his everything to the UFC and has been one of their best fighters. He has competed in 20+ fights in the UFC, and this is the first time he will be out of action for such a long time. We must respect him, and surely, when he comes back, he will prove everyone wrong.
