Pretty much a two-fight offering from the UFC this week. Jon Jones vs. Dominick Reyes is a fascinating bout and should provide bell-to-bell elite MMA action. The co-main event looks to be another potential showcase for champion Valentina Shevchenko, against challenger Katlyn Chookagian. As for the rest? Ige vs. Bektic should be a quality scrap, but the heavyweight bouts have a big potential to drag. Overall, it’s an undercard of few highlights.
