UFC 247: Jones vs Reyes

Mailburners post from other thread.


Usual times 11.15/1.0/3.0 BT SPORTS 2





Can't wait for this...Reyes I think has a chance but I don't think he's
quite ready for the puzzle that is jon jones just yet.
Could see him picking up a round, two at a push...


I like Katlyns confidence but I just can't see how she beats the second best fighter in the worlds...Valentino by murder

Latifi has a shot for me even though a big underdog

Two title fights but I don't see the womens one being much of a contest.
Rest of it looks weak enough, prelims as weak as I've seen for a ppv card and not a whole lot better/worse than the mc gregor cowboy card

Honestly it looks weaker than the McGregor V Cowboy card. Or equally bad anyway.
Not much interest in ANY of the prelims.

Bektic v Ige has FOTN potential.
Think Black Beast will be far too powerful for Latifi.
Juan Adams. Meh.
Valentina steamrolls Chookagian.
Jones outpoints and outsmarts Reyes.

Tough to get excited about a Jon Jones card. Unless he actually loses. Then I'll be retroactively excited.

Better card than McGregor thats for sure.

Looking forward to the main event I actually think Reyes has a decent chance but I fancy Jones by decision.

You really think so? Seems a bit forced tbh.

Which fights do you find interesting? (outside of Jones and Valentina obviously)

What are the chances of him being beaten?
I don't know anything about Reyes apart from the 12/0 headline but I happen across a face-off pic yesterday and he looked taller which is a nice change for Jones opponent. I can't watch anything Jones related so I'll be avoiding this, it'd be good if he got a spanking though.

Hopefully a Reyes KO.


I fancy the Decision Queen Chookagian to win...via decision.

Yeah, Shevchenko is probably most exciting female to watch. Black beast is either great or gasses out. But after than I think it takes a nose dive fast. Probably just catch the main card.

Also, an even longer shot: but is anywhere likely to be showing the fight in town tonight? Could get dragged to leeson st. later but I really want to see the fight, I was just going to go home early instead but it could be a great night.

For what it’s worth the bookies think he has a 20% chance of winning also.
