Jon Jones faces Anthony Smith as favourite on UFC 235 odds

Jon Jones Anthony Smith

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 next opponent for Jones is the veteran fighter Anthony Smith who will be vying for his title in UFC 235.

Jon Jones punches Alexander Gustafsson. "Bones" retained the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight title with a convincing but somewhat pedestrian unanimous decision over Smith in the UFC 235 headliner on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Woodley was a -200 favourite so the line movement suggests there is buzz about an upset. This was one year after the originally planned rematch was scrapped on days' notice after Jones tested positive for clomiphene and letrozole. "It will be undeniable I'm Fighter of the Year". Zhang, technically sound as a both a grappler and striker, may be able to apply a strength advantage on the mat and against the cage.

Usman, 31, extended his winning streak to 14 and maintain his unbeaten record in the UFC. In a fight when the person who riots first is going to lose Robbie Lawler will win every time.

Despite many modern UFC fans craving quick lightweight fights, there is no doubt that some of the best fighters have been heavyweights.

Ben Askren, Woodley's close friend and training partner, survived an opening-minute beating and rallied to choke out Robbie Lawler midway through the first round of his own UFC debut. Neither could exceed 170 pounds.

India and Pakistan routinely trade fire and blame the other for starting skirmishes along the frontier. He did not elaborate. "The guard over there just said we have to go down to the basement to sleep.

Although the unbeaten former collegiate wrestling star had dominated competition around the world for almost a decade, his tactical fighting style and his personal beefs with UFC President Dana White had kept him off the sport's biggest stage - and Askren insists he was at peace with it all.

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".

White hasn't said much publicly about the reasoning behind the UFC's decision to sign Askren after so many years. They want to see us bowing, some honour, some integrity and respect. I wanted to win the title. On paper, Smith (31-13) is a huge underdog against a fighter who is considered by many to be one of the best of his generation.

Colby Covington's response to promises of a UFC welterweight title shot was tepid at best. A fight like this, that I expect to be a great back-and-forth fight between two strikers, is ideal for the casual fan to watch and be persuaded to buy a PPV or tune in next time it's on ESPN. "I think this card has a little bit of that, just men handling business". Can you see a scenario where he beats me on the ground?
