Since winning the belt for the second time by submitting Alexander Gustaffson in a rematch that took place at UFC 232, ‘Bones’ remained active in this 2019 defended his crown against Anthony Smith at UFC 235 and Thiago ‘Marreta’ Santos in the UFC 239.
The fight against the Brazilian turned out to be the one that until now is the only victory by Jones’ split failure.
Reyes is undefeated as a professional and has just finished in less than two minutes with former Middleweight champion Chris Weidman on the star of the UFC Fight Night Boston. Reyes has won the six fights he has played over the octagon and holds victories over fighters such as Volkan Oezdemir, Jared Cannonier and Ovince Saint Preux.
The event, it should be noted, will have two title fights. In what will surely be the co-star of the evening, the champion of the Flies, Valentina Shevchenko, will expose her belt to Katlyn Chookagian.
