The first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) pay-per-view (PPV) event that is worth paying for in 2019 is a phenomenal card from top to bottom. The headliner is a light heavyweight title fight between division champion, Jon Jones, and perennially underestimated challenger, Anthony Smith. UFC 235’s co-main event is a Welterweight title tilt between 170-pound kingpin, Tyron Woodley, and Kamaru Usman. There are a total of four champions or former champions on the PPV main card portion and all but two of the fighters who are set to compete on the other side of a paywall have an official ranking next to their names.
Although I would say watching this fight card is more valuable than walking around with $65 in your pocket, I understand that giving money to UFC might not be an option right now.
I gave my money to Dana White and the gang for the chance to put my peepers on this event awhile back with the hopes that the card stayed intact. Thankfully for me, all of the important bouts are still ready to go. With my purchase I aim to provide you with a radio-style play-by-play broadcast of each groin strike, ripping body-shot, inverted triangle, or lopsided decision that is beyond the monetary blockade. I might be uglier than Jon Jones drug test, but during the entirety of UFC 235’s PPV main card I will be doing my best to keep fight fans informed on the, hopefully, intoxicating displays of mixed martial arts (MMA) violence starting at 10 p.m. ET in the video player above.
Here’s what’s in store tonight with UFC 235’s PPV main card:
205 lbs.: Jon Jones vs. Anthony Smith
170 lbs.: Tyron Woodley vs. Kamaru Usman
170 lbs.: Robbie Lawler vs. Ben Askren
115lbs.: Tecia Torres vs Weili Zhang
135 lbs.: Cody Garbrandt vs. Pedro Munhoz
