One of the biggest cards of 2019 has arrived as UFC 235 goes down Saturday night from Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, Jon Jones makes a quick turnaround as he looks to defend his light heavyweight title against Anthony Smith. Smith made headlines in the light heavyweight division after quickly going 3-0 and earning a shot at Jones. Jones is coming off his first fight in nearly two years as he finished Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 to win the vacant light heavyweight title.
In the co-main event, the UFC‘s welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, looks to defend his title for the fourth time. This time he will take on Kamaru Usman, who has not lost a single fight in the UFC, going 9-0 since 2015.
Before the co-main event, Ben Askren will make his long-awaited UFC debut. Standing across from him will be former UFC welterweight champion, Robbie Lawler.
Kicking off the main card, former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt will take on Pedro Munhoz as he looks for his first win since 2016. After that will be a women’s strawweight fight as Tecia Torres puts her top ten ranking on the line against rising star, Weili Zhang.
