Jones vs. Reyes Rematch In Store For Fans

It looks like Jan Blachowicz will have to wait for his first-ever title shot. Blachowicz seemed to be next in line to face light heavyweight champion Jon Jones following his impressive first-round knockout over Corey Anderson last month.

It put him on a three-fight win streak as well as a winner of seven of his last eight outings. “Bones” was even in attendance and the pair had a friendly confrontation afterwards. However, UFC president Dana White has other ideas.

At the UFC 249 press conference on Friday, he stated how he felt a rematch between Jones and Dominick Reyes should happen next. However, nothing is in the works for now.

“Dana White says Jon Jones vs. Dominick Reyes 2 should happen next but there’s been no negotiations or any serious discussions about the rematch being booked.”

Reyes fought Jones in a five-round war at UFC 247 last month with many believing he had done enough to get the victory. However, there was still a belief that Blachowicz would get the next shot following his win which came a week after that fight.

Is a Jones vs. Reyes rematch the right move? Or did Blachowicz deserve the next crack?
