UFC 247: Jones v Reyes
By Rich Jennings
Tonight in Houston, Texas, the Light Heavyweight Champ and GOAT, Jon Jones (25-1-1) returns against Dominic Reyes (12-0).
Jon “Bones” Jones is expected to walk through Reyes but I don’t see that happening. Every opponent is supposed to be that guy that dethrones the GOAT and it never happens whether it’s an old vet in Vitor Belfort, the new blood of the division in Anthony Smith or his biggest rival in Daniel Cormier.
Jones is just too good & too smart but I’m getting the feeling of a big upset. I know I’ll get crap for this and I’m most likely wrong but Jones looked beatable in his last fight against Thiago Santos and some people thought he actually lost. Right, Joey Delco? Jones won by a split decision.
Dominic Reyes has one-punch KO power and I see him really taking the fight to Bones. We’ll see…..
Valentina Schevchenko (18-3) defends her Featherweight Belt against Katlyn Chookagian (13-2).
Derek “Black Beast” Lewis (22-7-1) fighting in his hometown, welcomes Ilir Latifi (14-7-1) to the Heavyweight Division. I can’t wait for Lewis’ post-fight speech, they’re always the best!
