Two undefeated light heavyweight greats, a feared women’s flyweight champion and a heavyweight winner under threat of losing his belt – a UFC 247 live stream is looking like one that should not be missed.
Obviously, the stand out fight here is the main event Jon Jones vs Dominick Reyes. Many are labelling this as a done fight, with the odds on Jones taking the win almost certain before the match begins.
While that seems like an unfair observation against Reyes, an undefeated fighter who KO’ed ex-champion Chris Weidman back in 2019, he is against a man with a slightly unbelievable UFC history.
Tune in to watch UFC 247 online and you’ll likely hear repeated commentary on Jones and his expected win. Currently sitting at a 25-1 record (his only loss being disqualification), Jones is the #1 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC and holds multiple records in his weight class for the most title defences, most wins and longest winning streak.
While odds are not exactly in Reyes's favour, if he pulls off this win it will go down in history as one of the best MMA fights in history – more than enough reason to catch a UFC 247 live stream.
Need more reasons? Valentina Shevchenko. The women’s flyweight champion is powering her way through her division, quickly running out of worthy fighters and much like Reyes, Valentina’s competitor Katlyn Chookagian will be very hard pressed to pull out a win.

Who are Jon Jones and Dominick Reyes?
If you have even the faintest interest in UFC you will have heard of Jon Jones. The pound-for-pound #1 fighter is a living legend and every fighter to go up against him is looking to dethrone him.
Known for his lethal elbows, devastating blows to the chest and overwhelming stature, he's a brick wall you'll struggle to break through. However, if someone is going to step up and beat him, it will be Reyes.
One of the best up and coming MMA fighters, Reyes is currently undefeated and quickly racking up wins. He's become known for his lightning fast kicks and massive knockouts, if he manages to catch Jones off his guard, it could be the fight of the decade, if not a life time.
Who is the favorite to win the Jones vs Reyes fight?
Jon Jones is looking like the favorite to win by every bookie out there and a pretty large majority of fans. Realistically, Reyes would have to pull out a bit of a miracle if Jones’ history is anything to go by.
What are the other highlights from UFC 247?
While the title fight is obviously going to be the most exciting part for most fans of the sport, there are a few other matches to get amped about.
Valentina Shevchenko has been dominating the women's flyweight division and many fans expect the same fate in her duel with Chookagian as Jon Jones with Reyes – a dominating win.
Valentina is a punishing fighter likely to dominate the entire match and if we're honest, unlikely to be beaten. Only Chookagian, her number 1 contender, stands a chance.
When did Jones and Reyes last step into the ring?
Jon Jones last entered the Octagon back in July, 2019. He beat out Thiago Santos in a round 5 decision. As for Reyes, he won two fights back in 2019, one in October and one in March. Most noticeably, Reyes took on popular fighter Chris Weidman winning by a first round knockout.
