UFC 247, Jon Jones vs Dominick Reyes: What UK time in the fight tonight and when are the ringwalks?

UFC icon Jon Jones takes on Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 tonight, in his 15th-straight title fight.

Jones has never been beaten in the UFC, with the only blemish on his 22-1 (1) professional record coming when he was disqualified for throwing illegal downward elbows in his tenth professional fight, against Matt Hamill.

He outpointed Thiago Santos last time out and is the overwhelming favourite to beat Reyes tonight.
