Dominick Reyes said he is giving fighting a break after his most recent defeat by Jiri Prochazka in May.
“I actually have to heal, like actually let my mind… this is, like, real shit. I want to be able to talk to my grandkid when I’m older. It’s part of the process, man,” Reyes told James Lynch in a recent.
“I could be a macho man about it and be, like, ‘No, I’m good, I’m in the gym.’ No, man. I’m healing up. This shit is real life, bro. You’ve got to heal.
“I’m not fighting ’til, at the earliest, February. Mid-February. I’ve got to take care of my brain a little bit, here.”
