Dominick Reyes Already Thinking About Rematch With Jon Jones

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones defends the gold against Dominick Reyes in the main event of UFC 247.

Reyes is not only thinking about beating Jones in their first encounter, but is already looking towards the rematch as well.

“Absolutely. I look forward to the rematch,” Reyes told MMA Fighting. “I’m already planning the rematch in Cowboy Stadium. That’s already in the works. I already know what’s going to happen. I’m going to beat him, it’s not going to be enough. Perfect, let’s do it in Cowboy Stadium except this time it’s my pay-per-view.”

Jones has had two rematches throughout his UFC run, defeating Alexander Gustafsson in two meetings, while beating Daniel Cormier once and fighting the former two division champion to a no contest in their second encounter.

Reyes has planned for moments like the title shot against Jones and now Reyes knows he needs to get the job done.

“It’s almost like I designed this. Everything I said was going to happen, happened,” Reyes said. “Everything I planned has happened. I know exactly what I need to be successful and now I’m doing it.”

UFC 247 takes place on Saturday, February 8 from the Toyora Center in Houston, Texas with Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
