Dominick Reyes is among those who feel Jon Jones should have been punished by the UFC after his latest infraction for drunk driving but, given the UFC’s failure to act, ‘The Devastator’ is willing to take matters into his own hands.

Speaking to MMA Fighting in a recent interview Reyes, who dropped a controversial decision to Jones at UFC 247, said he wants to be the one to serve ‘Bones’ justice in their proposed light heavyweight championship rematch.

“That’s really my only concern,” Reyes said of a possible rematch. “All the other stuff, honestly as [the] general public, not as a fighter, he should probably be stripped. Because you can’t go around doing those things and have no repercussions.

“As a fighter and as the guy who wants to fight him, I want to be the one to serve him justice. That’s where I am with that. I want to fight him. Just as a sports fan, somebody that’s looking at doing something, there should be repercussions for your actions. As a fighter, I want to beat him up.”

Despite calls for a rematch, Jones has turned his attention to top-five UFC light heavyweight contender Jan Blachowicz, claiming that, as champion, he’s always on the lookout for ‘fresh meat’.
