Dominick Reyes Says Jon Jones Told Him Their UFC Rematch 'Is Gonna Be Epic'

Dominick Reyes has said Jon Jones complimented his performance after their light heavyweight title fight at UFC 247, with the champion suggesting he will give the challenger a rematch.

Reyes told Ariel Helwani's MMA Show (h/t ESPN's Marc Raimondi) that Jones said their rematch "is gonna be epic," and UFC President Dana White told him he's "the future of the division" after pushing the champion to the limit.

"If the fans put enough pressure on Jones, if they put enough pressure on the UFC and they want to see it, then I'm sure I'll get that rematch.

Per Steven Marrocco of MMA Fighting, Reyes had been aggrieved with the scoring on the night, with Joe Solis judging the fight 49-46 for Jones.

"Yeah, the judges suck," Reyes told Helwani.
