Ha. Okay bones. I wouldn’t wanna fight me either. @JonnyBones

Anderson comes off of a big first-round TKO victory over Johnny Walker in the featured UFC 244 preliminary bout over the weekend. As for Reyes, he knocked out former UFC middleweight kingpin Chris Weidman in the first round of their UFC Boston headliner last month.

Both men would certainly present interesting challenges for “Bones,” but it’s sounding like Reyes will get the nod first. Even UFC president Dana White recently noted that Jones vs. Reyes is the fight to make next.

“I mean, the fight that makes sense right now for Jon Jones is Dominick Reyes,” White said. “Just came off an impressive win over Weidman, and a lot of people saw it. Pulled good ratings on TV. It’s the fight to make.”
