UFC 235 8 burning questions around Jones-Smith Woodley Usman title fights

UFC 235 8 burning questions around Jones-Smith Woodley Usman title fights

In an era of 'superfights, ' Saturday night's UFC 235 card nearly feels a little old-school.

Lawler sat astride the world-class wrestler, delivering several thudding blows to Askren's head, opening more than one cut in the process.

Set to take place in Nevada, it is the biggest event of UFC so far in 2019, with two Title fights in the main event and co-main event. Jones also praises Smith for continuing to fight after his illegal knee which cost him two points. Smith has compiled a 7-2 record since entering the UFC with a couple big KO's.

Jon Jones' journey in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is filled with highs and lows. He lost by knockout in both matches after capturing the title with a win against Dominic Cruz.

With the win over Oezdemir, Smith called for a fight for the title and got one against Jones. That makes him extremely hard to beat. While their strikes might be packed with power, the fights can be lumbering and lacking in action. He has also already said he looks to challenge the victor of the upcoming fight between Darren Till and Jorge Masvidal, a bout which would make sense should Woodley remain champion.

How I see this fight playing out, however, is that Woodley is able to adjust early in the fight and pick up the first few rounds.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: We're going to fight until the end
He put in more crosses in open play than anyone else (5), and likewise made more key passes (3) than any of his team-mates. Emery said: 'We have a lot of matches and it's important to have big performances like this'.

"If this fight stays standing, Garbrandt should have an edge, and I expect him to win a decision with better boxing", Marley told SportsLine. He speaks his mind no matter what. With popular Israel Adesanya taking on Kelvin Gastelum for the interim middleweight title at UFC 236 next month and s heavyweight from Cameroon potentially dominating his weight class, Usman is giddy.

The rest of the card offers an intriguing matchup between former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler and undefeated wrestling powerhouse Ben Askren. This will be Lawler's first fight since a December 2017 bout with dos Anjos, a fight in which he tore his ACL.

The answer is no.

Askren himself even expressed his confusion at being paired up with a relatively polite guy like Lawler - especially given his own penchant for barbed trash-talk. That's what Robbie wants.

Jones finished uneventfully and remained unbeaten since 2009, winning a decision for the fifth time in his last seven fights. Also, at the much-anticipated UFC on ESPN 1 two weeks ago, Marley gave followers a strong underdog victor when he accurately predicted Andre Fili (+120) winning by decision over Myles Jury. He has sparred repeatedly on social media with White, who derided Askren as "the most boring fighter in MMA history" and an "absolute moron" before blocking Askren on Twitter. While MMA enthusiasts will criticize Lesnar for being a WWE wrestler, his credentials are proof of how good he is in the octagon.

The prelims are also can't miss! "Guys who run karate dojos and stuff, they don't want us saying "f- this guy" or "f- that guy" and fighting on stage".

Covington previously vowed to "make it a living hell for the UFC" if he wasn't given a title shot, and he seems intent on keeping his word.

The main card for UFC 235 is absolutely loaded. He was content to end his mixed martial arts career as one of the best fighters never to compete in the UFC.

This is a classic case of a technical striker vs a brawler. Given his reputation as one of the best MMA fighters ever, Jones is now a heavy betting favorite. UFC 235 started out hot and then kind of sputtered to the finish line.

Diego Sanchez vs Mickey Gall, Cody Stamann vs Alejandro Perez, Misha Cirkunov vs Johnny Walker, Jeremy Stephens vs Zabi Magomedsharipov. I can't wait to be healed up and really get to put my hands on him.
