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.
