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

April 2, 2024
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.
