Thiago Santos calls for title fight against Dominick Reyes following Jon Jones arrest

Thiago Santos believes he and Dominick Reyes should fight for the light heavyweight title following the arrest of Jon Jones.

On Thursday afternoon, news broke that UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones was arrested for a DWI and negligent use of a firearm. It is no doubt a bad look for the champion who has dealt with a ton of legal problems in the past.

The UFC has yet to comment on what they will do with the light heavyweight belt but Santos wants Jones to be stripped.

“I think UFCs 205 div needs a new champ! (One thats not forever in trouble!) I think me and Reyes deserve to fight for that belt! @danawhite @mickmaynard2 @ufc @DomReyes @UFCBrasil @Alexdavismma @espnmma,” Santos tweeted.

Thiago Santos, of course, hasn’t fought since he suffered a split-decision loss to Jon Jones for the belt at UFC 239. In the scrap, the Brazilian had success but “Bones” attacked his legs which resulted in Santos needing double knee surgery.

Since getting surgery, Santos has been recovering and had been clamoring for a rematch with Jones. But, he has now turned his attention to Reyes and hoping the UFC gets that fight done.
