Jon Jones says he's FINALLY decided on his next opponent -- revealing his sights are now set on Dominick Reyes instead of Corey Anderson ... and he's looking to make a statement.
"Just finished a coaches meeting studying Dominick and Cory‘s careers. Established Dominicks definitely the more dangerous fighter. Beating his ass next."
Jones had been debating between the two UFC fighters after they both SHOWED OUT in recent fights -- Reyes KO'd Chris Weidman and Anderson beat up Johnny Walker.
Both men have been calling for a fight with Jon for a while -- with Reyes telling us Jones was ducking him.
"I got these hands. I got this heart. I'm Mexican. He's never fought a Mexican. I'm tough as s**t and I'm never gonna stop!"
32-year-old Jones tweeted that he just wasn't interested in 29-year-old Reyes ... but clearly, something's changed.
Recently Dana White told us Reyes was the fight to make but the deal wasn't done yet.
Now, it seems Jones is laser-focused on Reyes ... and barring an injury, this one looks like it'll happen soon.
So, where does this leave Corey Anderson? Great question ... dude's been on a tear lately and recently cracked the Top 5 rankings in the UFC's light heavyweight division.
Stay tuned ...
