Official Result: Jon Jones (c) defeated Dominick Reyes by Unanimous Decision (48-47, 48-47, 49-46)

Jon Jones is still the UFC light heavyweight champion. Just barely.
 
In the toughest defense of his title since he engaged in a war with Alexander Gustafsson back in 2013, Jones had to survive an onslaught from a game challenger in Dominick Reyes to ultimately win a decision after five rounds.
 
The judges all sided with Jones with the scorecards reading 48-47, 48-47 and 49-46.
 
Even Jones was astonished by Reyes' performance but he felt the final five minutes is what helped him hold onto his title for another night.
 
"I knew it was a really close right and I turned it on in the fifth round," Jones said following the win. "That fifth round won me the fight. Those takedowns won me the fight."

I agree, but for some reason I don't feel much interest.

Reyes needs to clip him early and finish the job otherwise he's going to enter matrix with Jon Jones. Nobody gets out.

I have a feeling we'll see a brutal beatdown by Jones.

But I'm a a moron so well probably see Reyes flat line Jones in the first.

I am not a fan of Jones but I love watching him fight, he is one of if not the best fighters of all time. It is too bad that he is a steroid cheat because he would have gone down as the greatest without any asterisks.

I question the gas tank on Reyes. I'd like his chances if he has a good gas tank. I think he'll fade though, and that will be he his undoing.

Would love to see the upset.

Unfortunately I agree. Seeing that he's never gone five rounds... otherwise I'd love to see him get the win. 

I'll look for a 2nd round KO.
