    They are very similar. I think Reyes is more athletic but Gustafsson is more durable. I expect Reyes to come back but think Gus is done now.

    Reyes doesn’t have an ounce of skill that prime Gus has.


    If it wasn’t for Gus walking into Buzzsaws and generational talent den he would’ve won the belt.


    Dom Reyes got knocked out by slow Jan. (He has power but still )

    Lmao prime Gus was getting pieced up on the feet by a green Blachowicz

    Panic wrestling saved him, but Jan's TDD is excellent now

    Reyes has better counter-striking and is much faster.. also has much better footwork and more punching power.

    Reyes is a curtain jerker. Of course Gus is better.

    (That's a wrestling term)

    some similarities but fundamentally different fighters imo

    Reyes is one of the more raw p4p athletes in the ufc but lacks a well rounded offense. More of a Phil Davis without the strong wrestling background. Gus is more well rounded & technical maybe like a LHW Nick Diaz.

    “Probably”? We all know Gus is handsome. Reyes looks odd.

    Motivated Gus was an elite gatekeeper losing only to Jones, Dc and Rumble. Reyes propably isnt even that.
