Drops epic war to Jiri Prochazka
Light HeavyweightUFC
May 1, 2021
Reyes lost to Jiri Prochazka via KO (elbow) at 4:29 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
This was a ridiculously entertaining fight and one in which Reyes' toughness was on full display. He ate dozens and dozens of shots from Prochazka that would have fallen any mere mortal, and he still kept coming. Not only did Reyes keep coming, but he kept landing offense of his own. He certainly broke his nose in Round 1 and continued to battle, seemingly oblivious to the damage he was absorbing. Reyes managed to hang in there until a spinning elbow in the later stages of Round 2 turned his lights out. There should be a congressional investigation opened if Reyes doesn't receive a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus for his efforts, and it was indeed confirmed as Fight of the Night by UFC President Dana White after the show. Of course, none of this will make Reyes feel any better. A little less than 15 months ago, Reyes dropped a unanimous decision to Jon Jones in a title fight in which many people thought he won. Now, he has dropped three in a row and finds himself at a career crossroads. Reyes is 31 years of age but has all of 15 professional fights under his belt. There's reason to believe Dom can rebound from this, but he now finds himself miles and miles from the title picture, even in a painfully thin division.

Expected to fight in February

Reyes is expected to take on Jiri Prochazka in a light heavyweight bout as the main event at a UFC event scheduled for Feb. 27, reports.
Reyes began his UFC career with a 6-0 record, but he'll attempt to bounce back in February after dropping his last two fights. His most recent fight ended in a loss to Jan Blachowicz via TKO (punches) at UFC 253 in Abu Dhabi when he failed to secure the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship. Prochazka made his UFC debut in July and defeated Volkan Oezdemir via KO (punches) at UFC 251. The two fighters are even in height.
No-shows UFC 253 title fight

September 26, 2020
Reyes came up short in his quest for the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship on Saturday, falling to Jan Blachowicz via TKO (punches) at 4:36 of Round 2 at UFC 253 in Abu Dhabi.
Reyes looked nothing like the guy who nearly took the belt off of long-time king Jon Jones this past February. There's no other way to say it. Reyes has made a name for himself in the UFC as an aggressive, pinpoint striker who relies on kicks to be successful. All of those attributes were nowhere to be found in this one. He looked slow and hesitant offensively, and in the rare instances in which he did press forward, his defense was lacking. This is a fight that appeared to set up exceedingly well for Reyes on paper, but it just didn't work out for him once the two men stepped into the Octagon. Because of all he has accomplished in such a short period of time, it's easy to forget Reyes is a relative newcomer to the sport. He has all of 14 fights under his belt and has been a professional for less than six years. Reyes is talented enough and young enough (31 this coming December) to make another run at the gold, but it's going to be a while before he potentially gets another opportunity.
