Dominick Reyes Cleared of Blood Clot Issues, Ready for UFC Return

Published:

Former
UFC light heavyweight title challenger Dominick
Reyes is ready to return to action after battling through
potentially serious issue.

Reyes revealed in a video post on Instagram that he has received a
“clean bill of health,” clearing the way for him to fight again in
the near future. “The Devastator” had been dealing with blood clots
in his leg, which put a potential booking against Carlos
Ulberg at
UFC on ESPN 54 on hold.

“Hey everyone, I just got out of my appointment at Victor Valley
Imaging and I got a clean bill of health. No evidence of deep vein
thrombosis anymore. I’m pretty excited,” Reyes said. “I just got to
finish off these next few days of blood thinners and I’m good to
go, 100%. Thank you, everybody, for the kind words, the love, and
reaching out and everything. Time to get back at it, baby. I’m
ready to go.”

Reyes, who is perhaps best known for taking Jon Jones to
the brink of defeat at UFC 247, has lost four straight Octagon
appearances. The Victorville, California, native last appeared at
UFC 281, where he suffered a first-round KO loss to Ryan Spann in
November 2022. Reyes began his professional tenure with 12
consecutive victories — including six within the Las Vegas-based
promotion.
