Reyes has a solid wrestling background in high school, so he certainly has solid wrestling.  Reyes played football in domreyescollege for Stonybrook University, so he certainly has some athletic ability.  However, I believe his best attribute is his size.  He is 6’4″ and has a 78″ reach.  He certainly has the size and frame to compete as a light heavyweight.  He has also showed glimpses of power in his punches.  There were also moments you could tell that he was still growing in the striking department.  Dominick does a good job mixing up his punches and his kicks.  He has trained his jiu jitsu under Robert Drysdale.  He trains MMA at his brother, Alex’s gym, at Cage Combat Academy.  I believe that he is most dangerous on the mat.  However, he has solid striking.  He mixes things up well between his punches and his kicks.  Reyes one of the least known prospects on this list, but he is equally as promising.  There were time watching him where he reminded me of Tony Ferguson.  Reyes is currently fighting for King of the Cage, following a very successful amateur career.  I believe that he will need to take a step up in terms of quality of competition before he gets serious looks from the UFC or Bellator.  If you are looking for solid, under the radar fighter, Reyes is the guy.
