UFC 247 Top Headlines
- Jon “Bones” Jones (25-1 MMA, 19-1 UFC) will put his light heavyweight title on the line after seven months off against Dominick Reyes (12-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC). Jones has a chance to make history — with a win, he will become the all-time leader in title-fight wins with 14. His 17-consecutive victory streak in this division (the longest in UFC history) will be put to the test against up-and-coming Reyes. Jones comes in as a large favorite at -450.
- Women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko (18-3) is also risking her belt against top contender Katlyn Chookagian (13-2). Shevchenko, who has a 4-0 record in the division and has successfully defended her title twice already, is considered one of the best female fighters in the young sport’s history. She is a massive favorite and it is very difficult to find an aspect of the fight in which Chookagian holds an advantage. Experts don’t expect this fight to make it to decision.
