UFC 247: Jones vs. Reyes Betting Preview

Jones is an exceptional fighter that excels in talent. He possesses high-level wrestling skills that he uses to take rivals down, finishing them with unique ground and pound tactics.

With that said, Jones has received lots of criticism for fighting unmotivated and taking bouts to the lower level of his rivals.

It seems like he tries to understand his rivals by attacking them at their own game. This includes striking, which is his weaker area.

Jones is coming off a split-decision victory over Thiago Santos that lasted five rounds before a KO by the current champ.

When it comes to Reyes, he possesses terrific power in his fists, and he can defend himself very well against wrestling techniques.

He also has light feet, which allows him to get closer to his rivals in a faster way, land his punches, and remove himself from harm’s way real quick.

With that said, he has been taken down four times in his last five bouts. And a big reason for this is because sometimes he struggles with the accuracy of his strikes, leaving himself open for a counter.

We would love to see Jones going back to his classic wrestling style, though the quality is still there, as proven during his last bout, where he bullied Thiago Santos.

And, all “Bones” need to do to get this victory is to take advantage of the glaring holes in the striking attack by Reyes.
