Reyes makes quick work of Weidman in Boston

MMA

Entering Friday’s UFC Fight Night main event in Boston, the only thing missing from Dominick Reyes’ title shot resume was a signature win.

That is no longer the case.

Reyes (12-0) made quick work of a former UFC champion Friday night, as he knocked out Chris Weidman (14-5) at the 1 minutes, 43-second mark of the first round.

The light heavyweight contest marked Weidman’s 205-pound debut in the UFC. The 35-year-old held the 185-pound championship from 2013 to 2015.

It was the second-fastest finish of Reyes UFC career, and his eighth first-round finish overall. After the result, Reyes called for a title shot against dominant champion Jon Jones.

“Hey Jon, I don’t want any party favors,” Reyes said. “I want that belt, baby. Let’s go.”
