Reyes: I'll beat Jones, already planning rematch
Sean Pokorny / USA TODAY Sports

Dominick Reyes is still months away from challenging Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title, but he's confident and preparing for a second fight.

Reyes, who will meet Jones in the UFC 247 main event on Feb. 8, said he's come to terms with the fact that "Bones" will likely be granted an immediate rematch if he loses.

"I look forward to the rematch," Reyes said, according to Damon Martin of MMA Fighting. "I'm already planning the rematch in (AT&T) Stadium (in Texas). 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 (AT&T) Stadium - except this time it's my pay-per-view."

Jones is the current UFC pound-for-pound king and one of the most dominant fighters of all time. He holds wins over several former UFC champions - including Daniel Cormier, Rashad Evans, and Lyoto Machida - while his only official loss in MMA was a controversial 2009 disqualification due to an illegal elbow.

Undefeated as a pro, Reyes has made waves since joining the UFC in 2017. Most recently, he knocked out former middleweight champion Chris Weidman early in the first round. Reyes is 6-0 in the Octagon.

UFC 247 will take place at Toyota Center in Houston and also features a women's flyweight title bout between champion Valentina Shevchenko and Katlyn Chookagian.
