Jon Jones Finds A Way To Defend His Title At UFC 247

Once again, Jon Jones was declared the winner and still UFC light heavyweight champion.

After earning a split decision in his last title defense over Thiago Santos, the pound-for-pound top fighter picked up another decision, this time over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247.

Many believed Reyes had done enough to end the reign of “Bones,” but all three judges scored the fight for Jones.
