Whatever You Do, Don't Miss The Insanely Stacked UFC 235
UFC 235 is stacked. Like, seriously stacked.
We're talking two UFC title fights, three ex-UFC champions and the anticipated debut of Ben Askren not to mention a potential barn-burner in Jeremy Stephens vs. Zabit Magomedsharipov.
On March 2nd, UFC sets up it's famed Octagon at the T-Mobile Arena and it's shaping up to be an incredible event.
Topping the bill; Jon Jones who defends his 205 lbs title against rising contender, Anthony Smith.
Anthony Smith, ranked No.3 by UFC, has been on a tear. He's rattled off three consecutive victories including scalps against not one but TWO MMA legends.
He stopped Rashad Evans inside a minute before beating 'Shogun'. He also boasts a victory over Volkan Ozdemir.
A legit challenger to Jones. Smith's rediscovered himself at light-heavyweight and fights for UFC gold for the first time in his career whilst Jones looks to enhance his legacy.
UFC 235's co-main event is a good'un, too.
Tyron Woodley vs. Kamaru Usman is a done deal for UFC 235 on 3/2, sources say. If all goes according to plan the fight will serve as co-main for Jon Jones vs. Anthony Smith. However, unlike Woodley-Usman, Jones-Smith isn't signed yet. Jones has to get his license on 1/29 first.

Tyron Woodley will defend his UFC welterweight belt against Kamaru Usman.
There's needle between the pair so expect a fiery build-up.
That's not the only welterweight match-up on deck at UFC 235. Ben Askren will finally make his Octagon bow vs. former reigning champion Robbie Lawler in a potential No.1 contender bout.
