"Dominick Reyes is also a really good fighter, one of the best in the world, so we both deserve to have this chance and we got it, so I don't think about Jon Jones right now.

"He doesn't exist for me right now. I'm thinking only about Dominick Reyes."

Speaking about Jones, he continued by saying: "I think that he will come back to 205 in the future. If not, I can go to heavyweight also, no problem for me, and catch him over there."

Reyes vs. Blachowicz will serve as the co-main event of UFC 253.
