Dominik Reyes

The #1 contender in the Light Heavyweight Division, Dominik Reyes, is known as the Devastator in the UFC world. He’s a lean, mean, fighting machine with blunt force trauma capability in his powerful fists. With a record of 12 wins, 1 loss, and 0 draws, Dominick Reyes is the master of the ring.

7 of his wins come by way of KO, and 4 victories have been first round finishes – not too shabby considering he’s fought only 13 times. Reyes has a 49% striking accuracy, with 17% grappling accuracy (a number we feel should be significantly higher).

Reyes only loss was against Jon Jones at UFC 247. He won at Fight Night against Weidman and defeated Oezdemir at another Fight Night Challenge too. While he fights in the LHD, he hardly looks the part of a prize fighter, with a lean physique and no discernible muscle striations to be seen.

Beware, this prize fighter is certainly up to the challenge.
