Dominick Reyes won’t be getting a rematch against Jon Jones, but he’s still getting a dangerous fight and for the title.
Reyes will fight Jan Blachowicz vying to become the division’s newest champion at UFC 253. This comes as Jones vacated the UFC light heavyweight title due to his move to heavyweight.
Dominick Reyes Thinks Jan Blachowicz Is ‘A More Dangerous Fight’
Reyes made it known that he thinks Jan represents a much tougher task than the long-time 205lb king.
“Jan is a beast by the way. I’ve been impressed with Jan for years. I’ve been trying to fight Jan since I beat Cannonier because I respect the guys game. He is a very technical striker, he has more power than Jon,” Reyes said to ESPN. “I think he is a more dangerous fight for me to be 100 percent honest. He is a counter striker with a lot of power and has a BJJ black belt. He is very technical everywhere. Jon doesn’t counter striker and has no power and is not that technical, he is just tricky.” (Transcribed by BJPENN.com)
