The co-star fight of UFC 253 you will see facing Dominick Reyes (12–1) and Jan Blachowicz (26–8), for the vacant World Semi-Heavyweight Championship. This that Jon jones (26–1) recently dropped out to enter full weight is the one that will have one of them. There is just over a month ahead for this PPV and there will be a lot to talk about at this time. In this case, Reyes’ statements to ESPN are collected, about why Blachowicz is a tougher opponent than Bones.
Jan is a beast. It has impressed me for years. I’ve been trying to fight Jan since I beat Jared Cannonier because I respect his talent. He is an attacker with a lot of technique and more power than Jon. To be one hundred percent honest, I think it’s a more dangerous fight for me. He has a lot of power in the counterattack and is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu ”, was what the experienced fighter began saying, who will have a huge chance in front of him.
«He is very technical in all aspects. Jon it does not fight back and it does not have that power and it is not so technical, it only has some tricks, “he closed Dominick. It will be really interesting what happens in the fight Kings against Blachowicz next month. Either of them has enough weapons to be crowned the new monarch of the division, so it will be a fight with a high probability of knockout. Thus, the expectation continues to grow in these weeks.
The Jon Jones situation
Jon jones (26–1) and Dominick Reyes (12-1) met on February 8, 2020 in UFC 247 for the World Light Heavyweight Championship. The then champion won by unanimous decision. A widely criticized decision, with not a few claiming that it was the challenger who won. This opened the door to a future rematch. There was even talk about whether it could be immediate, while Jan Blachowicz (26–8) he was still waiting for his opportunity.
But recently the situation has totally changed. Jones has given up the title to move up to heavyweight and it looks like they will Kings and Blachowicz who will fight for him soon. It has not been officially confirmed yet but he is aiming for a match between the two for the vacant championship at UFC 253. In this way, a rematch Jon against Reyes won’t happen anytime soon, but it shouldn’t be ruled out either. What if in the future “Bones” returns to regain the title?
