Jon Jones first won the UFC’s light heavyweight championship three full years before Dominick Reyes even began fighting.
This can be looked at in two ways: one is that there is a severe experiential difference between the two fighters and the other is that Dominck Reyes has been in essence training to beat Jon Jones from the first day he put on a pair of 4oz gloves. Whatever way we slice it, it is likely that one of those two narratives will be the prevailing one once the fight begins to tell its own story.
