September 26, 2020
Reyes came up short in his quest for the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship on Saturday, falling to Jan Blachowicz via TKO (punches) at 4:36 of Round 2 at UFC 253 in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
Reyes looked nothing like the guy who nearly took the belt off of long-time king Jon Jones this past February. There's no other way to say it. Reyes has made a name for himself in the UFC as an aggressive, pinpoint striker who relies on kicks to be successful. All of those attributes were nowhere to be found in this one. He looked slow and hesitant offensively, and in the rare instances in which he did press forward, his defense was lacking. This is a fight that appeared to set up exceedingly well for Reyes on paper, but it just didn't work out for him once the two men stepped into the Octagon. Because of all he has accomplished in such a short period of time, it's easy to forget Reyes is a relative newcomer to the sport. He has all of 14 fights under his belt and has been a professional for less than six years. Reyes is talented enough and young enough (31 this coming December) to make another run at the gold, but it's going to be a while before he potentially gets another opportunity.

Reyes will face Jan Blachowicz for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 253 on Sept. 26.
ANALYSIS
Reyes nearly unseated Jon Jones during their matchup in February, and he'll now receive another shot at the belt with Jones vacating his title to pursue a run at heavyweight. Reyes lost via a controversial unanimous decision, and he'll receive his second title chance of 2020 next month. Blachowicz is coming off a KO defeat of Corey Anderson in February and was poised for the next title shot at Jones, but he'll instead face Reyes with the championship on the line.
Nearly ends reign of Jon Jones
Light HeavyweightUFC
February 8, 2020
Reyes came up just short in his quest for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship on Saturday, falling to Jon Jones via unanimous decision (47-48, 47-48, 46-49) at UFC 247 in Houston.
ANALYSIS
There are many who thought Reyes deserved to walk out of the Toyota Center with the gold. He fought about as well as he possibly could have. Reyes started very quickly. He outworked Jones in Rounds 1-3 before slowing down considerably over the course of the final two frames. Calm and composed throughout the course of the fight, Reyes displayed exceptional takedown defense and did a nice job of firing off shots at Jones and slipping out of the way before the champ could return combinations. Reyes made Jones work for his offense and never let him get into a sustained rhythm. Every time Jones appeared to be gaining steam, Reyes landed a big shot. While it wasn't the result Reyes was looking for, the fact a former collegiate football player with just 13 pro fights under his belt nearly knocked off arguably the greatest MMA fighter of all time is simply remarkable. Reyes is going to be around for a long, long time.
