UFC 235 feels like a throwback

UFC 235

As for Smith, he was obviously upset about the way the fight played out but he still managed to go 25 minutes in his first shot at UFC gold.

As far as title defenses go for light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, Saturday's victory over upstart Anthony Smith was as one-sided as it was nondescript as he cruised to victory against a stubborn opponent he couldn't finish.

In the night's co-main event Nigeria-born Kamaru Usman produced the performance of his career to dominate long-reigning welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and become the first African-born world champion in UFC history. Let me know what you think about them!

UFC 235 "Jones vs. Smith"-which airs live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT-will also feature a welterweight clash pairing former champion Robbie Lawler with the undefeated Ben Askren, a women's strawweight tilt pitting Tecia Torres against Weili Zhang and a bantamweight affair matching Cody Garbrandt with Pedro Munhoz".

He went big-name hunting in the media - names like Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz. "Guys who run karate dojos and stuff, they don't want us saying "f- this guy" or "f- that guy" and fighting on stage. If anything, Dana and UFC are s-tting on the fans". His goal in 2019 is to be the undisputed Fighter of the Year.

"I'm going after the middleweight belt. I'm really looking forward to this UFC 235 fight". "I have to get better", Smith said. A fight like this, that I expect to be a great back-and-forth fight between two strikers, is flawless for the casual fan to watch and be persuaded to buy a PPV or tune in next time it's on ESPN. Before his suspension, Jones successfully defended his title eight times from 2011 to 2015. Woodley said. "I think it's dope for the sport".

"I don't have to do as many title fights as he did to prove that", Woodley said. And he has constantly spoken of his belief that he is the best welterweight fighter in the world. This is a time when guys are well rounded and everybody knows how to do everything.

"I have never had someone talk to me while I'm hitting them, it was awesome, this guy is so durable, he's like the Terminator".

Woodley will instead fight Kamaru Usman this weekend, though it seems Covington is the one upping the ante. He's been stirring the pot with all the UFC fighters since he entered the promotion after being traded from ONE Championship for Demetrious Johnson. "It was a new style for me, but I thought it was necessary because my strikes weren't affecting him at all". He crashed Usman's open workout... he harassed UFC President Dana White at blackjack table... he even threatened to destroy the UFC's boss's auto. Usman repeatedly took the one-time Missouri wrestling star down and held him, as Woodley could generate no offense. He maintained a high pace that eventually just sunk dos Anjos.

We know Lawler has strong takedown defence, we know he's durable and we know he's proven at the very highest level of the sport. Woodley is every bit the wrestler Usman is (both enjoyed successful collegiate careers), and his fast-twitch counterstriking is so unsafe, opponents have to respect it. You can't afford any mistakes coming in on T-Wood.
