June 18, 2024

Dominick "The Devastator" Reyes achieved redemption at UFC on ESPN 57 by securing a first-round knockout victory over Dustin Jacoby in their co-main event clash at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville. This triumph marked a significant milestone for Reyes, ending a nearly five-year victory drought and restoring his confidence in the octagon.

Reflecting on his long-awaited win, Reyes expressed a sense of relief and gratitude, emphasizing the mental and emotional hurdles he overcame to reach this moment. "I had so many questions — just questioning myself. Then I saw my performance. I felt it out there," Reyes shared, highlighting his resilience and determination.

For Reyes, this victory was about more than reclaiming his status in the UFC's light heavyweight division; it was about proving his worth and perseverance. "It was everything I’ve ever dreamed of since I was a small child wanting to be a professional athlete," he remarked. "It’s relief. It’s gratitude. It’s everything."

As he looks ahead, Reyes remains open to potential matchups but prioritizes his upcoming wedding. However, he aims to continue his ascent in the division and hopes to compete at The Sphere as part of UFC 306. "I’m working toward the title again. I don’t really have anybody in mind, but if people want to call me out, cool. That gives me more options," he explained.
