Kyoji Horiguchi vs Jon delos Reyes Added to UFC Fight Night 52 in Japan

 

One of Japan’s best fighters in MMA today, Kyoji Horiguchi will make his return to the Octagon to face Guam native, Jon delos Reyes.  Kyoji Horiguchi has amassed a 13-1 Pro MMA Record with an impressive 8 wins by way of knockout.  Kyoji Horiguchi won his Octagon debut less than a year ago in October of 2013 against Dustin Pague.  Horiguchi was able to escape a dangerous 1st Round and get the knockdown and ground and pound finish in the 2nd Round.  Horiguchi stepped back into the cage against top flyweight, Darrell Montague, dropping to 125lbs for the first time.  Horiguchi was impressive throughout the fight, nearly finishing the Mongoose with punches late in the 2nd Round.  With a rumored bout with Chris Cariaso scrapped due to Chris getting a shot at Demetrious Johnson’s belt at UFC 177, Horiguchi was left without an opponent.  Jon delos Reyes stepped in to face Horiguchi in Tokyo, Japan.  Jon delos Reyes lost his UFC debut to Dustin Kimura by armbar in the 1st round.  Reyes put together an impressive PXC career and looks to get another winning streak going as he drops to flyweight.
