Jon Jones outclasses Anthony Smith with methodical 5-round dissection

The deepest card for the foreseeable future is here as UFC 235 boasts a 12-fight event that is a must watch from start to finish.

Jones last competed at UFC 232, where he reclaimed the light heavyweight title via third-round technical knockout in a rematch against Alexander Gustaffson.

Realistically, the only way Jon Jones loses this bout is if he makes an uncharacteristic mistake, and Smith is a big outside bet at +550, which could prove to be the upset of the night.

"I feel like I'll move up to heavyweight on my own terms when I feel like the UFC is playing ball with me contractually to entertain that".

Jones, a heavy favorite entering the fight, poured on the offense as Smith mounted little in the form of defense and even less in attack.

There was no big right hands or any out-of-the-blue submissions.

In the past, Bones has reiterated that he wouldn't fight DC in the heavyweight division as it gives the latter too much of an advantage.

Woodley will instead fight Kamaru Usman this weekend, though it seems Covington is the one upping the ante. The co-headlining bout will feature defending UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley as he goes up against 2nd ranked Kamaru Usman, who is on a 13-fight winning streak. According to UFC Stats, he landed just 60 total strikes to a whopping 336 for Usman. Shortly thereafter UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley, Askren's friend and teammate, had a much more hard night. "I want this forever and I want to do everything in my power to protect it for as long as possible".

UFC 235 was a thing and MMA rumors are here to go the full 25 minutes with you.

Former US Olympic wrestler Lawler protested against the first-round stoppage, playing up to the crowd and teasing UFC president Dana White by asking: "Is that the best you've got?!"

-295: Ben Askren moneyline to beat Robbie Lawler.

Lawler has improved massively in the twilight of his career and his sprawler-brawler fighting style could prove disastrous for Askren. Lawler lost his title to Woodley and Askren is Woodley's training partner.

Ben Askren and his new boss are never going to be the best of friends and the UFC newcomer expects White to complain about Askren's first win in the Octagon.

Zhang meanwhile is coming off a dominant performance against Jessica Aguilar that saw her produce a lot of damage.

Woodley also wonders why USADA wouldn't just test him earlier in the day, instead of costing the fighter some money. I'm not sure if Zabit can do that to Stephens, but he's so good that I have to pick Zabit by TKO.
