Live from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, Jon Jones battles Dominick Reyes in the main event of UFC 247!
A battle for the Light Heavyweight Title headlines tonight’s event as champion Jon “Bones” Jones puts his strap on the line against Dominick “The Devastator” Reyes. Entering tonight’s bout with a near perfect record of 24-1, Jones hasn’t tasted defeat since December of 2009, losing by disqualification to Matt Hamill at The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights Finale. Reyes, who enters tonight’s contest at #4 in the UFC light heavyweight rankings, is undefeated, last defeating Chris Weidman in October of 2019 at a UFC on ESPN event. Jones has the reach (84.5 to 77), but does the challenger have what it takes to dethrone the champ? We shall see.
Arguably the greatest fighter in UFC history is set to return to the Octagon on Saturday when Jon Jones puts his light heavyweight championship on the line against Dominick Reyes in the main event of UFC 247. Jones won't be alone in putting his championship on the line that night, with women's flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko defending her belt against No. 1 contender Katlyn Chookagian in the co-main event from Houston's Toyota Center.
Rounding out the pay-per-view main card is a featherweight bout between Mirsad Bektic and Dan Ige as well as a pair of heavyweight fights with Derrick Lewis battling Ilir Latifi and Juan Adams clashing with Justin Tafa.
