It is easily the year’s best MMA card thus far on Saturday night from Las Vegas as a light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and contender Anthony Smith highlights UFC 235.
The five-fight main card is predicted to begin at 10 p.m. ET on pay-per-view. Here’s a look at those spells — and the previous prelim — and their Sports Interaction UFC chances.

He simply appears to derail his career out of it, whether due to problems or drug tests that are failing. In 2011, Jones became the youngest winner in UFC history, and he never dropped it. However, a drug test would come out after Jones beat Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 and Jones was suspended and stripped of this light heavyweight belt.
Jones earned it back using a knockout of Alexander Gustafsson in December, but even that arrived with an asterisk. Jones tested positive as well as Nevada’s state wouldn’t give him a licence to fight. So the card, in a really unprecedented movement, was shifted to Los Angeles. The 30-year-old Smith is a former middleweight who has fought 205 pounds for less than a year. He is on an impressive winning series over Mauricio Rua, Volkan Oezdemir and Rashad Evans. There’s some discussion Jones might face Cormier, the heavyweight champ, using a win even though Jones (unofficially) has defeated him twice .
