Jon Jones makes the third defense of his latest reign as light heavyweight champion when he faces unbeaten Dominick Reyes in the main event of UFC 247 on Feb. 8 at the Toyota Center in Houston. The main card begins at 10 p.m. ET on pay-per-view, which fans can purchase here. The prelims are on ESPN at 8 p.m., with the early prelims on ESPN+ at 6:30.

Jones (25-1, 1 NC) has never had a legitimate loss inside the Octagon. The defeat on his record came in a 2009 bout against Matt Hamill that he was dominating; he was disqualified for landing elbows from a prohibited 12-to-6 trajectory. The no-contest on Jones' record came in a 2017 fight against Daniel Cormier; it was a Jones knockout that was overturned after he failed a drug test.

Reyes (12-0) earned his title shot with a first-round KO win over former middleweight champion Chris Weidman in October.

The UFC 247 co-main event is also a title fight, with women's flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko defending her belt against Katlyn Chookagian.
