Despite continued criticism that he’s past his best, controversial UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones remains undefeated - but will that change against Dominick Reyes this weekend? You'll be able to find the answer - no matter where you are - with a UFC 247 live stream today.

Boasting an unblemished record of his own, the up and coming Reyes looks likely to be the toughest contender presented to Jones for some time. Widely regarded as the best natural athlete in the division the Californian has been on a rapid ascent to the top of the division in just six UFC fights.

Many of critics will say current two-time champion Jones is on the opposite trajectory, with his last defence of his crown in July being a less than convincing split-decision victory over Thiago Santos. Nevertheless, it remains the case that the 32-year-old New Yorker has never been stopped nor outscored, with the only negative mark on his 26-fight career being a much-debated disqualification for landing illegal elbows on Matt Hamill back in 2009. 

Jones is on a streak of 13 straight UFC title fights and is ranked No. 1 on the UFC's official pound-for-pound list, leaving many to ponder if the only person capable of displacing him as champ is Jones himself thanks to his numerous run-ins with the law.

Alongside the main event , UFC 247 an equally strong undercard, with women's flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko attempting to defend her crown against Katlyn Chookagian in the co-main, while heavyweight star Derrick Lewis will also be in action against Sweden’s Ilir Latifi.
