On February 8th in Houston, Texas, the UFC heads to the Toyota Center for a championship doubleheader pay-per-view event. The headliner is a light heavyweight title defense for Jon Jones, as he takes on the undefeated and very exciting Dominick Reyes. As for the co-main event, women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko puts her belt on the line against Katlyn Chookagian.
The biggest non-title fights on the card at the moment are a heavyweight bout between Derrick Lewis and Ilir Latifi, with the latter (obviously) moving up from light heavyweight, while men’s bantamweight contender Marlon Vera gets a major step up in competition against Jimmie Rivera.
Here is what we have in store for UFC 247, keeping in mind there should be a couple more fights added to the lineup:
Jon Jones vs. Dominick Reyes
