Jon Jones tells Dominick Reyes ‘you’re in a whole new league’ ahead of UFC 247 title fight

Jon Jones warns Dominick Reyes that he’s entering a ‘whole new league’ at UFC 247.

Jon Jones has had just about enough of Dominick Reyes’ passive-aggressive remarks, and the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion and pound-for-pound #1 wants to make his feelings known on social media.

‘Bones’ targeted Reyes in a series of Tweets on Friday afternoon, telling the undefeated light heavyweight contender he has no idea what he’s letting himself in for at UFC 247.

“Dominic watching your interviews, it’s obvious you think you’re better than me. You never struggled with substance abuse, you have your big degrees, was always team captain at everything. We get it,” Jones posted in his first Tweet of the afternoon.

“I’ve been looked over and counted out by guys like you for as long as I can remember. Year after year I prove guys like you aren’t shit. You’re in my world now.”

“With that being said I hope you’re training for me harder than you trained for your NFL tryouts. You’re in a whole new league now #StudAthlete < #GodGivenTalent”.

Jones, 32, has never lost a title fight and is widely considered the greatest light heavyweight of all time. The JacksonWink standout will meet Reyes in the UFC 247 main event next year, Feb. 8 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
