Stipe Miocic Snubs Jon Jones In His Mount Rushmore Of Greatest UFC Fighters
The 38-year-old UFC star successfully retained his heavyweight title after beating Daniel Cormier by unanimous decision at UFC 252 earlier this month.
And Miocic took part in an Instagram Q&A and was asked by one fan to name his UFC version of Mount Rushmore.
Despite the fan asking him to exclude himself, the two-time heavyweight champ named himself first.
Miocic then continued by listing UFC legends Royce Gracie, Ronda Rousey, Forrest Griffin and Georges St-Pierre.
And the UFC legend has already been linked with UFC super-fights with Miocic and Francis Ngannou.

Anthony Smith, who fought Jones at UFC 235 in 2019, also believes that Miocic would 'cause problems' for 'Bones' inside the octagon.
UFC president Dana White has confirmed that Jones would receive a shot at the championship when he moves up to heavyweight.
He told reporters after Dana White's Contender Series: "Of course. I mean realistically, Jon Jones is undefeated. He's never been beat.
"Mazzagatti's been out of the game for years. I don't mean to keep beating this guy up, but you know. Jon Jones is undefeated."
White added that he has spoken to Jones and the UFC star is ready to wait for the "right fight" to happen.
The UFC chief explained: "Last time we talked to Jon Jones, Jon Jones said he was going to take some time and do his things he's into right now and take some time, and when there's a right fight, he'll give us a call."
