LAS VEGAS — The heavyweight division in the UFC has once again become the talk of the sport after Stipe Miocic’s victory by decision over Daniel Cormier at UFC 252 this past weekend. Miocic has defended his UFC Heavyweight with Cormier now headed to retirement it leaves the door open for other heavyweight fighters to have a legitimate shot at the division title.

After his win at UFC 252, Miocic said, “ I’ll fight anyone….I don’t care. I love what I do.”

The line of fighters awaiting a shot at Miocic isn’t short as challengers from all over the UFC put out their claims to be the next opponent of the heavyweight division champion.

UFC President Dana White hinted that Francis Ngannou will likely be the next contender to have a shot at the Heavyweight championship.

While Ngannou is the most worthy heavyweight of a title shot, another all-time great UFC fighter has also thrown his name into consideration to be Miocic’s next opponent. That would be current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones who is reportedly mulling jumping up a weight class to become a two-division champion.

While it’ll take Jones some time to prepare himself for a heavyweight fight against one of the greats in the division. He shouldn’t be overlooked as a potential opponent in the future for Miocic.

Betting on who Miocic’s next opponent will be is one of the newest UFC betting props posted at BetOnline this week.

Stipe Miocic Next Opponent Odds

  • Francis Ngannou -200
  • Jon Jones +150

Winner: Francis Ngannou (-200). Although Ngannou has already faced Miocic and lost. The Cameroonian striker is first in line for a rematch as he’s the second-ranked fighter in the heavyweight division.

Like Ngannou said, “I got next” and that should tell bettors everything they need to know about where to place their bets for who will be Stipe Miocic’s next opponent.
