Jon Jones was the source of another UFC pay-per-view overhaul.
The heavyweight champion suffered a torn pectoral muscle while in camp for his massive showdown against Stipe Miocic in New York, prompting the promotion to create an interim title fight between Sergei Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall.
Jones could be out for another year, which leaves Miocic on the sidelines as a healthy scratch. Both parties seem to only want that fight next, but Miocic said the UFC never reached out to him to offer the interim title fight.
How did the promotion handle this situation? Should Miocic have been given the opportunity to fight Aspinall or Pavlovich? Is attempting to keep Jones vs. Miocic together the right play?
We asked our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Mike Bohn, Danny Segura and Brian “Goze” Garcia to look at the heavyweight title picture with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia.
