A showdown between Miocic and Jones has been mooted following the UFC heavyweight king's victory over 'DC' and 'Bones' moving up in weight.

And common opponent Cormier has weighed in on the potential match-up, predicting either a knockout win for Miocic or a decision victory for Jones.

"Jones won't knock him out. Jones won't punch him and put him to sleep," he said about Jones' punching power to Ariel Helwani.

"It doesn't matter what he weighs, he does not have that punching power.

"He doesn't hit very hard. Kicks hard, but he doesn't punch very hard.

"He will be able to compete. That's a fact. You can love him, you can hate him, but that's a fact. 185, Jon Jones can compete. 205, Jon Jones can compete. 265, or whatever the weight is at heavyweight, Jon Jones can compete.

"He will compete against anybody. So, for him to go to heavyweight, I don't know if it's as risky as people are trying to make it seem.

"He can fight those guys because I fought those guys. They're big, they're strong, they're dangerous. But he can fight those guys."
