Dominick Reyes, who is set to face Jan Blachowicz at UFC 253, for the vacant Light Heavyweight title, has paid respect to the former champion Jon Jones, who voluntarily vacated the title after mulling over and initiating a move to the Heavyweight division. Jones claims that he has achieved everything in the circuit, and has a new challenge in his sights. He even disclosed his reason for a sudden relinquish.
I vacated the light heavyweight championship because I knew my heavyweight goals were going to take some time. I wasn’t going to play games with the contenders and make people fight interim championship belts. There’s little rest on the throne
