God puts us through some trials, man. I鈥檓 having another hard go right now, Reyes expressed. 鈥淭hen a week later, I ended up getting blood clots deep vein thrombosis.鈥

Reyes recounted the terrifying realization of his condition and the fortunate timing of its discovery. 鈥淪o yeah, I鈥檓 out for a minute. I鈥檓 lucky to be alive right now, that鈥檚 always nice. We caught it early, right, so it didn鈥檛 become a pulmonary embolism, and thank God for that.鈥

The fighter also shared the unsettling moment when he realized the severity of his situation. 鈥淚t鈥檚 kind of crazy because I got a massage. My leg was hurting, I thought I pulled a muscle in my calf, so I got a massage, and that鈥檚 the worst thing you could ever do. I鈥檓 lucky I didn鈥檛 die on that massage table right there.鈥

Despite the adversity, Reyes remains determined to rebuild himself physically and mentally.
