UFC 235 is going down Saturday night, March 2, 2019 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las, Vegs Nevada live on PPV starting at 10 pm. The fighters could not be more than 205 pounds one day prior to the bout. He is on a three-fight win streak, two of the wins being vicious first round knockouts. At some point, superfights stop feeling so super when it feels like they're happening every couple of months. This may be the best card mixed martial arts fan will see all year, with the main event featuring UFC light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones (23-1) squaring off against the very experienced veteran in challenger Anthony "Lionheart" Smith (31-13). The UFC shipped former flyweight champion Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson to One in exchange for Askren, and both fighters eagerly jumped at the opportunity. Woodley said. "I think it's dope for the sport". Even so, he thinks he has more left in the tank.
Although they're always going to be an asterisk alongside Jon Jones' name, there's no denying that there's always been excitement surrounding a potential move to the heavyweight division. The fight went to the fifth and Jones maintained the same pace. Can you see a scenario where he beats me on the ground? "I think he was so far ahead of the curve when he came onto the scene, so far ahead of everybody, that he was this mythical creature, and no one could figure out his style". My other hobbies? Curling up with a nice book when I am not too busy writing.
When asked after the fight why he didn't take the win by disqualification, Smith said: "I could've sat there and taken the DQ win". The ratings for the first couple broadcasts of their new TV deal with ESPN have been better than anyone honestly expected, so the company is in good shape right now.
While this is certainly a fight that could go either way, Woodley (-175) has been made a slight favorite over Usman (+145), with Woodley's ability to go on the offensive as a striker when he needs to likely giving him the advantage.
"Yeah, it's satisfying", Jones said. I can't be in a room with that guy.

It could go either way, but I'll very cautiously side with Askren to control enough of the fight on the mat to get the win. Also, at the much-anticipated UFC on ESPN 1 two weeks ago, Marley gave followers a strong underdog victor when he accurately predicted Andre Fili (+120) winning by decision over Myles Jury.
After all the headaches he's caused - and there was another atypical drug test this week - it's a little surreal that his fight with Smith can be seen as a throwback to the good old days. You have to out strike him without getting taken down. There was nothing 30 percent about Saturday night's fight.
One UFC fan fumed: "Jon Jones is dirty as f***".
"I'm the people's world champ, I'm America's world champ. My job is to take on all invaders". He hasn't fought in the U.S.in almost six years during an MMA career that began shortly after he competed in freestyle wrestling in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
