7 Ups & 3 Downs From UFC 247

We take a look back at all the action from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.


Compared to some of the other cards that are planned for the next few months, the only thing that really stood out about UFC 247 were the two title fights at the top of the bill. However, the UFC have managed to continue their hot streak of having extremely entertaining pay-per-views filled with abundance of action. This one was no different as there was plenty of drama inside and outside the Octagon tonight.

Jon Jones managed to retain his UFC light-heavyweight title against Dominick Reyes in an outstanding fight, but it wasn't without controversy due to some highly questionable judging. While the judging wasn't great, neither was Jones' performance. Are we finally seeing the slow decline of Jones inside the Octagon or was Reyes' performance simply better than what fans and analysts expected?

Despite the judges doing everything in their power to mess up what turned out to be an outstanding night of fights, there was plenty of violence spread out throughout the card and we'll be taking an in-depth look at all the biggest moments from the night's fights.

Let's begin with the downs from tonight's show...
