There is a chance that Jon Jones can challenge Stipe Miocic for the UFC heavyweight title in the future and according to coach Mike Winkeljohn, Jones has the advantage in just about every way.

Winkeljohn recently revealed in an interview with Submission Radio that Jones can beat Miocic in every aspect of MMA.

“Oh, I’m definitely looking at Stipe,” Winkeljohn said (via Abhinav Kini of The Body Lock). “In my mind, that’s a great fight for Jon to take. That motivates Jon. I think Stipe is incredible. I really like the guy, I have nothing but great things to say about him as a person, over and above, just a great fighter. But Jon’s got his sights set on [being] the best and might as well do it. It’s a tough one. Stipe is a great striker, so strong everywhere and he’s real smart. I saw the way he was controlling some of the heavyweights on the ground. He’s smart about what he does. But I think Jon beats him in every one of those aspects. When Jon puts his mind to it, Jon beats everybody at wrestling, he beats everybody at stand-up, he beats everybody everywhere and always ends up having a bloody show when things go right.”

Jones was arguably one of the best light heavyweight fighters in MMA history, but Jones has yet to compete at heavyweight, despite his aspirations to become the heavyweight title holder.
