At UFC 247, Dominick Reyes came very, very close to dethroning the reigning king from one pound for one pound. Many thought Reyes made the first three rounds against Jon Jones and deserved the decision, but unfortunately for him, the judges disagreed.
The close call made some charts shine in Reyes.
Although it is unclear whether he will get immediate revenge or not, Reyes is now the number one contender for light heavyweight and has also entered the list of pounds per pound.
There have also been some other changes to the rankings, but less than usual came out of a PPV. Here is a look at all the changes this week.
