UFC247 Preview

UFC 247: Jones vs. Reyes is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on February 8, 2020 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

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.

A light heavyweight title bout between UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes is expected to serve as the headliner.

A women's flyweight title bout between UFC Women’s Flyweight Champion Valentina Shevchenko and Katlyn Chookagian is expected to serve as the co-headliner.

While not officially announced by the organization, the promotion was initially targeting a light heavyweight bout between former title challenger Ovince Saint Preux and Ryan Spann to take place at the event. However, promotion matchmakers elected to go in another direction and the pairing was scrapped from the event.

A bantamweight bout between Sean O'Malley and José Alberto Quiñónez was originally scheduled to take place at UFC 229. However, it was scrapped after O'Malley failed a United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) drug test. The bout was then expected to take place at this event but it was eventually moved to UFC 248 for unknown reasons.
