Watch this chilling UFC 247: ‘Jones vs. Reyes’ video promo narrated by actor Ron Perlman

One of the biggest MMA events of the year will unravel later this evening (Sat., Feb. 8, 2020) at UFC 247 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, as two title fights lead a talent-rich card destined to entertain fight fights around the world.

In the headlining act, legendary UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones takes on undefeated contender Dominick Reyes in a tantalizing 205-pound clash. This will not only be Jones’ 15th-straight title fight inside of the Octagon — which happens to be a UFC record — but this may very well be “Bones” last fight in the division as he sets his sights on the heavyweight crop. It will be up to Reyes to shock the MMA world, utilize his size and power to disrupt Jones’ game plan, capture the illustrious 205-pound crown, and force Jones to stick around for a little while longer.

The co-main event of the evening will feature a women’s flyweight matchup between surging champion Valentina Shevchenko and promising contender Katlyn Chookagian. As a massive -1000 favorite (according to Bet Online), Shevchenko must show up ready to dominate in order to cash in on this opportunity and remind fight fans that she is one of the most deadly champions in the sport today. For Chookagian, this will be her chance to shine in front of the entire combat community and showcase her skills for fans who may not know who she is. The talented contender may just be tall enough and skilled enough on the feet and ground to pull of the upset, but things will have to go perfectly in order for “Blonde Fighter” to pull it off.

In advance to UFC 247’s PPV action, the promotion has released a rather chilling video preview narrated by actor Ron Perlman, which can be seen in the above player. Perlman has done an incredible job with these recent fight promos and delivers yet again for this weekend’s festivities. If you aren’t jacked for tonight’s throwdown in “H-Town” then you need to watch it now.

MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 247 fight card below, starting with the ESPN+/Fight Pass “Prelims” matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET, then the remaining undercard balance on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET, before the PPV main card start time at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
