Jon Jones Defends Title With Unanimous-Decision Victory, Dominick Reyes Feels Disrespected

Jon Jones defended his title during the light heavyweight title fight at UFC 247 on Saturday, defeating Dominick Reyes with a unanimous-decision victory.

“One of the judges had it 49-46. Like, who are you? I might want to have a word with you. Other than that, I know I won that fight. I was in that fight. I don’t have to watch the replay. I was there. I made Jon Jones look like just a man. I brought the fight to him.”

Jones defended himself and was bold in his response.

“I don’t think he was disrespected. I got takedowns. He got no takedowns. I got his back. At one point I put a hook in. The fifth round, I was surprised in the output difference we had. I have to watch the fight. It’s hard to speak with confidence when I haven’t watched the fight.”

Reyes wasn’t the only one upset with the judge and the outcome. UFC commentator Joe Rogan echoed Reyes’ claims.

“I can’t argue about this enough,” Rogan said. “I can’t get angry enough. I’ve done it so many times. For anyone to think that was 4-1 Jon Jones, that person’s insane. They’re insane. Dominick Reyes put on a hell of a fight tonight. And to disrespect that performance by that kind of judging is insane.”

Jones now sits at 15-0 in title fights and became the all-time leader in UFC title defenses.
