Toyota Center in Houston Texas Hosts 2 Title Fights at UFC 247

Speedyreg - UFC 247 Fight
Speedyreg – UFC 247 Fight

Topping the card this weekend is Jones vs Reyes competing for the light heavyweight belt, and Shevchenko vs Chookagian in a fight to win the women’s flyweight championship. Jones is the current holder of the light heavyweight title and maintained the title last time it was up for grabs. He’s undefeated since 2009 so Reyes is going to have a real battle on his hands if he’s going to snatch that title from it’s current holder. But Reyes has set the record with 12 wins in 12 fights, so he’s certainly a contender and this is by no means a done deal. It’s all there to fight for!

Tune in at 11.15pm

The action begins with the early prelims at 6.15pm in Houston, Texas, so that’s a later start for us here in the UK at 11.15pm with the prelims at around 1am and the main card at 3am. The title fights will begin around 4.30am so it’s going to be a late night if you’re tuning in live. All the action will be broadcast on Sky Sport 2.

Some great plates for Jones and Reyes

Whether it’s a reward for the win, or a commiseration for the defeat, we’ve picked out some great plates for UFC stars Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes. We have lots of fabulous JON plates that any Jon would be proud to own. With plates such as 2 JON, 12 JON, 86 JON and JON 2D there are certainly plenty to choose from. Jones might also like a plate with his initials JJ on. We’ve got loads of those too and we think JJ 2 and 7 JJ are a couple of the best. For Reyes we’ve got lots of DOM plates such as B8 DOM, K10 DOM and DOM 11E. His initials are DR which would make these plates perfect for him, but totally awesome for a doctor! The ultimate DR plate has got to be 1 DR. Even Dr Who would love that one surely? We reckon the TARDIS needs a private plate! We’ve also got 27 DR, 30 DR, 50 DR and many more!
