Midnight Mania! Jon Jones tears up Dominick Reyes after ‘throwing’ accusations


Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Although Jon Jones has spoken of a heavyweight move several times over the past decade or so, this time around it appears to be real. “Bones” officially canceled the light heavyweight title, paving the way for himself to challenge the big men, while also creating an opportunity for Dominick Reyes to fight Jan Blachowicz for the 205-pound belt.

Reyes, however, is still somewhat obsessed with Jones. “The Dominator” thinks he deserved a nod to Jones in their competitive UFC 247 fight, and he accused Jones of running away from the rematch. Jones once asked Reyes to get back to reality, but Reyes continues to speak on Instagram.

In a comment responding to Reyes, Jones wrote: “You won your chance to fight for the championship and you failed. I know I pop your cherry like it should [have] been really depressing, but it’s time for you to move on now.

“Instead of trying to run a ridiculous campaign that I’m throwing at you, you should actually thank me. Think about it, an incredible opportunity has been seized starting in January. You should just be grateful and keep your mouth shut.

Somehow, I don’t expect Reyes to follow Jones’s advice, at least not while hopes for a possible rematch are still alive. For now, however, Reyes would probably be well advised to focus on Jan Blachowicz’s ‘Polish power’ for fear of getting fisted in their title fight.
