UFC 247 — Jon Jones vs. Dominick Reyes: Fight card, results, highlights, complete guide

After a grueling five-round war in the main event, Jon Jones is still your UFC light heavyweight champion. “Bones” got arguably his most difficult test to date in challenger Dominick Reyes in the main event of UFC 247 from Houston, having to survive a hellacious onslaught in the first three rounds.

But in the end, the judges agreed that Jones was the better man on this night. In the co-main event, it was business as usual for women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko, who stopped Katlyn Chookagian in the third round of their 125-pound title fight. Shevchenko looked as crisp as ever in stopping the challenger, landing a flush spinning back kick to the face before finishing the fight on the ground.
