Main Card

Jon Jones

Jon “Bones” Jones is a UFC lightweight fighter that hails from Rochester, New York in USA. He fights out of Jackson-Wink MMA and he owns a professional fighting record of 25-1. If it was not for a disqualification, Jones would have been undefeated. At 32 years old, Jones has been in trouble with PEDs and it caused him a no-contest match against Daniel Cormier. Since 2015 he has won four more matches against Alexander Gustafsson, Anthony Smith, Ovcince St. Preux and the latest was against Thiago Santos via Split Decision just this February 8. Jones hopes to extend this fight streak even further and this fighter can score a win in many ways. Reyes is a fighter that has his turn to fight “Bones” and he is expected to dominate this match against him come February 8.

Dominick Reyes

Dominick Reyes is a light heavyweight fighter that came from Victorville, California USA and fights out of Cage Combat Academy. Reyes is dubbed as “The Devastator” on how he dominates his opponents and true enough, he owns an undefeated 12-0 record in his professional MMA career. He entered the UFC in 2017 and he defeated Joachim Christensen on a 29-second knockout. He has six fights in the UFC and he took down bigger names along the way that included Ovince St. Preux, Volkan Oezdemir and the latest was a devastating finish against former UFC champion Chris Weidman in the first round. Reyes owns a strong KO punch that could stun Jones and he will look for that in the early rounds.

Jones vs Reyes Betting Picks

According to Online Betting, Jones is the much-favored fighter in this matchup. But Reyes looks like a fighter that is built to stop him and he got to be wary of his hands on the stand-up. Overall, Jones is the safe bet and he continues to dominate the UFC despite a turbulent past.
