The black belt in gaidojutsu and current Ufc light-Hw champion Jon Jones entered this fight with a professional mma record of 25-1-0 (64% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.1 light heavyweight in the world. Jones’ only loss was, in reality, a disqualification suffered against Matt Hamill in 2009 due to multiple “12-6 elbows” (strike brought from a high position toward the floor), since then he has collected 16 victories and one no-contest, against Daniel Cormier in 2017 (Jones defeated ‘DC’ via KO but then he tested positive for turinabol so the result was overturned in a NC, Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier I); last year Jones defeated Anthony Smith (Jon Jones vs Anthony Smith) and Thiago Santos (Jon Jones vs Thiago Santos).
His opponent, the undefeated Dominick Reyes, has a perfect record of 12-0-0 (75% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.9 in the same weight class. In his last three bouts he has won over Ovince St Preux (Ovince St Preux vs Dominick Reyes), Volkan Oezdemir (Dominick Reyes vs Volkan Oezdemir) and Chris Weidman (Dominick Reyes vs Chris Weidman). Jones vs Reyes, main event of Ufc 247, is valid for the Ufc light heavyweight title (Jones’ third defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
