Season 24 Monsters Tourney Champion
- Jan 14, 2015
A light heavyweight title fight between reigning champion Jon Jones and undefeated contender Dominick Reyes is currently in the works for a pay-per-view event expected to take place in Houston, Texas, on Feb. 8
Multiple sources confirmed the fight when speaking to MMA Fighting on Friday. News of the fight was first reported by BJPenn.com.
Jones has been teasing his return to action for the past week after declaring Reyes was the opponent he wanted to face next.
Now he will attempt the third straight defense of his light heavyweight title as Jones looks to build on recent wins over Alexander Gustafsson, Anthony Smith and Thiago Santos. Jones is 25-1 with one no contest in his career with the only loss on his resume coming via a disqualification back in 2009 when he was bludgeoning Matt Hamill with elbows that were deemed illegal.
