Jon Jones as one of the greatest MMA fighters in history is also one of the most problematic MMA fighters in history. It is a series of violations of the law that "Bones" committed during the previous years, and the public was surprised by the latest ones.
Namely, Jones was arrested for a little over a week for violence against his fiancée and the mother of their three children. Such an action has been met with numerous condemnations, both by fans and by fellow fighters.
There are many who believe that Jones should finally bear the more serious consequences and may even need to be fired from the UFC. UFC welterweight fighter Dominick Reyes would keep Jon Jones in the strongest MMA promotion, citing an interesting reason why.
'' It's definitely not right of him, nor for anyone involved in it all, even if it was about the organization (the UFC), Jon, or his family. Regardless, it’s not good." "This is not his first offense, but it is up to the organization (UFC) to decide.
As for me personally, I hope they keep him so I can beat him up again. All in all, there’s not much to say except that things don’t look good." "He’s one of the greatest ever, and he allows himself things like that.
I don't understand why'' Dominick said in an interview with James Lynch.
Recall, Jones and Reyes also fought in February 2020 at the UFC 247 event. Jones defended the belt with a unanimous referee's decision, but we watched an extremely close fight that could easily go to the challenger's side.
Reyes already had a chance to win the belt again in the next performance after that. The 31-year-old American fighter fought Jan Blachowicz for a vacant light heavyweight belt but was defeated by knockout. Currently, Dominick's last appearance took place in May this year, and Jiri Prochazka inflicted the third defeat to Reyes in a row.
The chances of a new match between Reyes and Jones are miserable, so it is unlikely Dominick will get a new chance against one of the greatest in history. However, it seems that Reyes will always believe that he deserved the victory in that match and that he beat Jones.
It would certainly be interesting if he had the chance to really show that he was better, but we doubt he would have an easy task against Jones, who is truly one of the greatest UFC fighters
