  • Dominick Reyes believes he beat Jon Jones during their showdown as heavyweights
  • “The Devastator” also wants fans to always remember that

Dominick Reyes still believes he beat Jon Jones during their title fight at UFC 247 in 2020.

Jones should remember he lost

Speaking to The MMA Hour, “The Devastator” shared his honest take on Jones’ pursuit of GOAT status. While there’s nothing wrong about it, Reyes pointed out that “Bones” should also remember that he lost to him.

“He just wants to be known as the greatest of all time. That’s the bottom line he just wants unequivocally, no questions, Jon Jones: The Greatest… Tom [Aspinall] is extremely dangerous, Tom is young in his championship career, what does really Tom have to offer Jon in terms of legacy right now? Jon’s thinking I only got one or two left, they gotta be worth it and he doesn’t see Tom or Curtis [Blaydes] as a long-standing champion,” Reyes explained. “And he sees them as ‘right now’. And he’s not worried about right now, he’s worried about forever,” Reyes said.

“But forever, he will also know that he lost to me, but maybe we could figure that out one day,” he explained. “Oh yeah, it’s not a belief [that I beat him], it’s a fact, there’s a difference.”

For context, it can be recalled that Jones secured a unanimous victory over Reyes.

What’s next for Jones and Dominick

As it stands, Jones has been back in training but still not cleared to compete again. It is yet to be known if his lengthy hiatus could affect his performance. However, one thing certain is that Aspinall has been calling for a showdown with “Bones.”

For now, Aspinall could still wait for Jones but has already hinted at targeting other fights while labeling the former longtime light heavyweight champ “irrelevant.” On the other hand, Reyes is coming off a first-round KO win over Dustin Jacoby, having gone winless in three fights in a row since losing to Jones.
