Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is primed and ready for Saturday night’s (March 2, 2019) UFC 235: “Jones vs Smith” pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The event will see current Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones defend his title against Anthony Smith after reclaiming it by knocking out Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 last December (see the entire fight for free here).
