    Reyes really impressed me with his lateral footwork, and combinations, his speed and power are impressive, his takedown defense is good stopped Jones, and Weidmans takedowns probably cause of his long ass torso lol. His flaws are mainly cardio. People need to stop judging fighters off one bad performance it is clear reyes has improved since the Volkan fight.

    With Reyes & Santos LHW division is becoming interesting

    the weakest Version of Jones made him look better than he really is

    I said for years on the feet he'd beat Jones, but his takedown defence really impressed me last night

    It's hard to see who at 205 can beat him without having their relatives as judges

    Both guys looked just okay. It was the worst jones has ever looked and Reyes overachieved for sure but the division is trash and neither guy was really impressive

    I never seen someone use lateral footwork like that against Jones which is actually really effective if your fighting a taller/longer guy.

    Going in I felt he was just an okay LHW. He showed me a lot and I think he still has growth potential. There are some good young guys in the LHW division and hopefully those that have already lost to Jones will not allow that to be their defining moment of their MMA career.

    The guy is technical has power, and speed. His cardio is the problem. He blew his load in the first 3 rounds trying to finish jones

    I missed that Volkan vs Rakic fight did Volkan get robbed? Volkan is another guy to look out for. Reyes vs Volkan 2 main event would be a good fight.

    People bagging on Jones but I thought he looked about as good as ever. His spinning kicks to the body are money as are his sidekicks

    He got outstruck yes, but he never seemed hurt or tired. Which makes no sense to me because Dominick took it to him

    Would have liked to see him pace himself a bit more and be willing to stand in front of Jon and trade. Felt like he blew his wad by the 4th but he still won the first 3 for me.

    Yeah he needs to work on his cardio, but being in there for a full 5 rounds is experience that really does help. Crazy how little experience he has considering most of his 12 fights were first round finishes

    Reyes is the champ. He clearly won that fight.

    IT specialists around the world should be proud. Reyes should get a call from Bill Gates to congratulate him.

    Reyes looked impressive he looked like a lhw Dom Cruz. Jones was not prepared for that type of movement.

    Jones has a good chin, and can roll with punches nicely.

    I recall it being 1-1 then Dom got wrestle fucked in the third. To me it was a clear Volkan win

    Edit: Ops I read it wrong but he won Rakic and Latifi

    this was probably the best Version of Reyes. Lets see if he can improve … Maybe hes the douglas of MMA.

    I feel like hardcore JJ fans really don't like how the fight was so close and their only way to reconcile the fight is to convince themselves that JJ isn't as good as he used to be because he's gotten older...when in reality JJ is a MUCH better and smarter fighter than he's ever been regardless of his age.
