This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC 247
UFC 247 went down on Saturday night at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The second pay-per-view card of 2020 saw two titles on the line. In the main event, Jon Jones somehow managed to defend his UFC light heavyweight title against Dominick Reyes.
Despite appearing to win the first three rounds, Reyes found himself on the wrong end of a 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 unanimous decision. Jones now has fourteen title fight wins in the UFC, more than anyone else. With the controversial finish, there will no doubt be calls for an immediate rematch.
On a night full of crazy decision, Valentina Shevchenko didn’t allow her fight to go the distance in the UFC 247 co-main event against Katlyn Chookagian. ‘The Bullet’ TKO’d her opponent in the third round, after another impressive performance. The question is now, is there a worthy opponent for the champion in the women’s flyweight division?
Elsewhere on the UFC 247 card, Justin Tafa scored a TKO victory over Juan Adams and Derrick Lewis edged a unanimous decision win against Ilir Latifi, both in the heavyweight division.
There were also four split decisions at UFC 247, breaking the record. Including Trevin Giles win over James Krause, who accepted the fight on one day’s notice, after Antonio Arroyo was forced out of the fight on Friday between the weigh-ins in the morning and ceremonial weigh-ins in the evening.
