Ryan Spann, Dominick Reyes, UFC 281, KO, UFC

Reyes (12-4 MMA) decided to take a lengthy hiatus from the sport following his brutal knockout loss to Jiri Prochazka in May of 2021. That setback had marked ‘The Devastator’s’ third in a row, as he was previously knocked out by Jan Blachowicz and outpointed by Jon Jones. Prior to that rough stretch, Dominick had gone a perfect 12-0 which included wins over Chris Weidman, Ovince Saint Preux and Volkan Oezdemir.

Meanwhile, Ryan Spann (21-7 MMA) was most recently seen in action at May’s UFC Vegas 54 event, where he scored a first-round submission victory over Ion Cutelaba. Prior to that win, ‘Superman’ was coming off a submission defeat at the hands of Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith.

Ryan Spann missed weight by 0.6lbs on Friday, and thus tonight’s matchup is considered a catchweight contest.

Round one begins and Ryan Spann comes forward quickly. Reyes keeps him at bay with a kick to the body. Spann with a big right hand. Reyes answers with a huge left.
