Latest UFC 235 fight card, rumors for ‘Jones vs Smith’ PPV on March 2 in Vegas

New, 8 comments

Jon Jones will attempt to make his quickest turnaround in six years, taking on Anthony Smith in UFC 235’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event less than three months after reclaiming his 205-pound title ... as long as he can steer clear of all those “stupid” drug test-related hurdles. Meanwhile, in the co-main event, the irritating 170-pound championship carousel will finally end with division champion Tyron Woodley defending his belt against No. 2-ranked contender Kamaru Usman (not Colby Covington).
