Dominick Reyes has been talked about as a future light heavyweight title contender and that buzz will only grow after Friday.

“The Devastator” lived up to his nickname in the UFC on ESPN 6 main event in Boston, needing less than two minutes to dispose of former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, who was competing at 205 pounds for the first time. That impressive performance followed a memorable three-round featherweight battle between Yair Rodriguez and Jeremy Stephens, a scrap that all but erased the bitter memory of their truncated first encounter.
