  • Jon Jones Anthony Smith

And he will need all the cheers and screams he can get as he takes on a man rated among the UFC's top "pound-for-pound" performers - a man who will be defending his belt for the fifth time.

Askren heads into this bout the favourite but I think that's a huge disservice to Robbie Lawler.

Askren is a brilliant wrestler but his stand-up is lacking and against someone like Lawler, if he struggles to ground the former UFC champion he could be on the end of some big punches.

For all his flaws and maddening missteps, Jon Jones inexorably remains the preeminent talent in mixed martial arts.

He didn't get the finish but Jones was just muscling Smith around on the mat while he was throwing strikes from every position including some unique knee strikes to the shin. Despite the dominant way in which he won, though, Jones audibly apologized to his team after for not finishing Smith and reiterated the thoughts during his post-fight interview.

"This MMA thing is really hard, " Jones said. "Some days you are going to look fantastic and some days you're not going to perform at the level you want to", Jones said.

Jones dominated and had control over the Texan throughout the entire fight to win via unanimous decision; all judges scoring the fight 48-44.

And while many fans are hoping to see Jones move up to heavyweight to challenge for the title held by his old rival Daniel Cormier, Jones hinted that he may stick around at light-heavyweight, where fresh challenges await.

When Woodley first claimed the welterweight title almost three years ago at UFC 201, he had no qualms about asking for the "money fight". And now he's set to face a hugely respected longtime contender in a fight that, if he's successful, could propel him into a title shot.

Referee Herb Dean stopped the fight as officials checked on Smith.

Smith (31-14) had a modicum of success early by trading relatively even with Jones in the opening round until a series of spinning back kicks to the body saw Jones begin the process of wearing him down. Smith has pointedly ignored Jones' checkered history except when asked directly about it, preferring to keep his focus on an upset.

"[Darren] Till was probably stiffest competition out of all the welterweights, Usman is a better fighter and tougher fighter than Colby". Usman celebrated in the cage with his daughter before his hand was raised in victory. He was born in Nigeria and moved to the USA when he was 8.

Woodley comes into UFC 235 having won six of his last seven fights, with a draw against Stephen Thompson the only blemish on his record since 2014. "It will be undeniable I'm Fighter of the Year".

"I don't care what Uncle Fester has to say". "I was prepared for this fight". I'm not backing down.

Robbie Lawler (28-12, 1 NC) vs.

"I've got the belt, and I'm number one in the world".
