UFC 247 featured a controversial unanimous decision as champ Jon Jones was able to get the nod over previously undefeated Dominick Reyes.

Even though one judge scored four rounds in the favour of Reyes, the fight was certainly close than the scorecards reflected. In fact many people of the MMA community believed Reyes had done enough to secure a win over P4P #1 ranked Jones.

UFC News: Dominick Reyes' camp claims immediate rematch with Jon Jones unlikely - Reyes

That being said, Reyes has been eyeing for a rematch ever since. Meanwhile, a virtual title eliminator took place as Polish Jan Blachowicz knocked out a surging Corey Anderson. Due to dynamics of the division, Reyes’ camp believes the rematch to be unlikely. Reyes’ training partner, UFC and 47 fight veteran, Sam Alvey, released a statement that the rematch is uncertain. Even though he believes Reyes won the fight.

I don’t think he is getting the rematch. Jon wants Blachowicz. I think we will see Blachowicz get Jones and we will see Reyes fight Corey Anderson. Anderson doesn’t want to fight Dom but he doesn’t have a choice,” Alvey said to BJPENN.com. “If and when he beats Corey, Dom will get the rematch. Although I think Dom won the fight and deserves an immediate rematch, all signs point to it not happening, unfortunately.”

Reyes came out guns blazing in the first three rounds but lost steam in the championship rounds. Jones, who obviously has more experience in the championship rounds, clearly won the fourth and fifth rounds. The dispute seems to have been on the second round. Also the judging on the earlier fights of the card was egregious, which added to the controversy of the decision.

Regardless according to Alvey, Reyes is back into the gym and watching him inspires him and their entire team.
