Jon Jones Beats Dominick Reyes Via Decision, Defends UFC Light Heavyweight Title

Jon Jones made yet another defense of his light heavyweight championship belt with a unanimous decision win over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in Houston, Texas.

The only blemish on his record came via disqualification against Matt Hamill and he's effectively cleaned out the light heavyweight division multiple times throughout his career.

Bones holds wins over four of the current top five in the division and the bottom half of the top 10 doesn't hold any real intriguing challenges at this point.

"I think a move towards heavyweight will be inevitable," Jones' striking coach Brandon Gibson told MMA Fighting's Eurobash podcast (h/t Peter Carroll of MMA Fighting), "I think that it's one of our bigger goals.

But I definitely think we'll see Jon fight at light heavyweight again, for sure, that's a belt he's held for a decade."
