Jones has since won against Anthony Smith, Thiago Santos and Alexander Gustafsson.
Last month Reyes (12-0) secured a first-round knockout over the former middleweight champion and light-heavyweight debutant Chris Weidman. Also, he has beaten such fighters as Jared Cannonier, Ovince Saint Preux and Volkan Oezdemir since he signed for the UFC in 2017.
