Jon Jones successfully defended his UFC light heavyweight title against challenger Dominick Reyes at UFC 247.
The victory came with an unanimous decision by scores of 48-47, 48-47 and 49-46.
It was one of the toughest fights in Jones’ career, and he nearly lost it.
In the cage after the bout, Jones said he was unsure of what’s next for him as talk of a heavyweight move has swirled. He said he’d have to discuss options with his team. There’s no doubt the fight between Jones and Reyes was close.
Stop with the "robbery" talk. It was an insanely close fight. Nobody got robbed. Coming from the biggest Jon Jones hater in town. #UFC247
