Dominick Reyes is reporting he’s okay and that he’ll be back, following his vicious knockout loss this past weekend.

Reyes took on fellow light heavyweight contender Jiri Prochazka at UFC Vegas 25, and was brutally knocked out by a spinning elbow from the latter. More recently, Reyes shared out the statement below (transcript via MMA Junkie).

“Finally home and surrounded by those I love, I’d like to say, I went out there and fought with all my heart! I put it all out there or I’m glad it was entertaining for most of you. I’m happy and upset as you can imagine I didn’t get the desired outcome. But I went out and fought and for that I can say I’m proud. I love this game and at times it does not love me back but that’s what we have all signed up for. I want to say I’m doing good healing up I’ll be OK. And congrats to @JiriProchazka hell of a fight and what an elbow. It’s the ones you don’t see coming that get you. God bless you all and I’ll see you guys at the next one.”

The 31-year-old Reyes (12-3) has lost three straight now, after going 12-0 to begin his pro career. After losing a tightly contested, controversial decision to Jon Jones in February 2020, Reyes was stopped by Jan Blachowicz in September.
