The Ultimate Fighting Championship is set to host an action-packed UFC 247 with three title fights this weekend but first they will focus on UFC 247 and one of the biggest stars of the campaign, Jon Jones.
The light heavyweight champion is set to defend his belt against his rival Dominic Reyes on Saturday, February 7th, and tickets go on sale today.
To mark the moment, the UFC took an hour before Jones and Race’s official weigh-in to take the stage with UFC President Dana White at a press conference open to the public.
During the press conference, the two main event fighters will ask questions from the media and fans before the square at the center of the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Toyota Center is excited to host UFC on February 8. The UFC’s return to Houston will be its biggest event ever in the Lone Star State, as pound-for-pound king Jon Jones puts his light heavyweight title on the line against unbeaten knockout artist Dominick “The Devastator” Reyes. Plus, dominant flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko defends her crown against surging contender Katlyn Chookagian, and Houston’s own Derrick Lewis welcomes Ilir Latifi to the heavyweight division.
