Jon Jones Lands Latest Jibe At Dominick Reyes On Social Media

Jon Jones Lands Latest Jibe At Dominick Reyes On Social Media

Jon Jones has stoked the fires ahead of his UFC light heavyweight title defence against Dominick Reyes on Saturday by having a go at the challenger on social media.

The champion is undefeated in 11 years, with his only loss a disqualification in 2009, and is fighting the 11th defence of a title he's held twice and never lost in the octagon.

On Saturday he faces Reyes at UFC 247 in a rivalry that has heated up in a war of words which 'Bones' has continued on Twitter on Monday.

First Jones dismissed a quote by his challenger before calling him the "one of the greatest athletes in Apple Valley history."

Jon Jones Ruthlessly Mocks Dominick Reyes After His Defeat To Jan Blachowicz At UFC 253

published at2 months ago

Reyes had his own go at mind games last week. Speaking to MMA Fighting the undefeated American talked about Jones' reputation for eye pokes saying, "It's something where it is what it is. Not much I can do about it except give the referee an advanced, 'Hey man, please look out for this, he's notorious for this.'

"It's going to be hard for me to get in. I'm not going to run my face directly into fingers. It is what it is. It's just another challenge that he presents.

"I think more than just the fingers being outstretched is that he stays busy with that lead hand. I think that's what keeps guys at bay, he paws with it and he paws exactly at his range. That's been a gigantic weapon of his. It sets up the rest of his arsenal. It helps him find his range."

Reyes is in just his seventh UFC fight, having beaten Chris Weidman last time out, and will be looking to cause a huge upset against the man considered one, if not the, best ever in the company.

Will it be title defence number 12 on Saturday or could it be Jones who ends up eating humble pie?
