Jones – Reyes II?
So, the good news is that Reyes isn’t seriously injured, and that could leave the door open to a rematch with Jones. “Bones'” longtime striking coach, Mike Winkeljohn, recently said he thinks a rematch is a real possibility. While talking to MMA Fighting he said this:
“There’s no doubt about that,” Winkeljohn said. “Jon likes rematches. Jon is a student of the game. We would all put our heads together, but at the end of the day, Jon sits down and says, ‘This wasn’t good, this is what he can do,’ and he’ll be even more motivated. Just like [Alexander] Gustafsson where you saw his performance was totally different.
“It’s not that he took anybody light, but he’s just so smart at making those small adjustments that are needed. Us as a team, we’ll try to help out as well.”
