The former UFC Light Heavyweight title contender Dominick Reyes faced the third consecutive loss of his career in the main event of UFC Vegas 25 against Jiri Prochazka.

This is also Dominick Reyes’s third straight loss of his MMA career. Before facing the former champion Jon Jones, Reyes holds a perfect record of 12-0. But after taking Jones in deep water he faced the first defeat of his MMA career by unanimous decision.

After this he faced Jan Blachowicz for the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight title and Blachowicz knocked him out and he lost the title even after being fans favorite in this fight.

But in his recent fight against Jiri Prochazka, he took the worst beating of them all. Reyes landed some heavy shots that caught wind of Prochazka sometime in the fight but in the end, he landed a spinning elbow that resulted in Reyes facing his third straight loss.
