UFC 235 on FOX+ on Sunday

He was content to end his mixed martial arts career as one of the best fighters never to compete in the UFC. Outside of an exciting two-way brawl in the final minute of Round 4 in which Woodley was lucky to finish, the fight was all Usman, all the time, thanks to his relentless pressure.

Although, with a weak 205-pound division, it seems like a lackluster opponent for Jon Jones.

"Hats off to Anthony Smith", Jones said.

"This MMA thing is really hard". "Some days you're going to look wonderful, and some days at work you're not going to perform at the level you hold yourself to".

Because he has been away from the sport for some time, Jones has said he wants to remain as active as possible, wishing to fight multiple times this year.

Jones won 48-44 on all three scorecards. Jones will go down as one of the best MMA fighters of all time in the record books, with his first light heavyweight title reign lasting eight defenses - a UFC record.

The main card begins with one-time bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt (-160) taking on Pedro Munhoz (+130) in his first fight since losing successive title bouts to T.J. Dillashaw. He took Woodley down in the opening round and, after Woodley managed to work back to his feet, peppered him with knees and punches in the clinch. Woodley (19-3-1) last defended his title against Darren Till at UFC 228 past year and will look to make it four straight title defenses when he takes on Usman.

Askren Lawler UFC 235

He has been out of the octagon since June 2018, when he defeated Rafael dos Anjos for the interim belt. I still see the fight going the way Woodley wants it to and controlling his opponent as he always does. The Nigeria native is ranked as the second-best welterweight in the world by Sherdog, while ESPN rates him fourth, and the UFC has him as the No. 2 contender.

"First of all, let's give it up for Tyron Woodley".

Usman won 50-44 on two cards and 50-45 on the third.

"Colby had two chances", Woodley said. "I think he was so far ahead of the curve when he came onto the scene, so far ahead of everybody, that he was this mythical creature, and no one could figure out his style. I would love to run it back again and put on a better performance". Instead, the UFC declined to offer him a contract and he went on to sign with ONE. I see Askren winning by decision. "I was mostly surprised at how quickly he got me up and down". Lawler is a competent grappler in his own right but it is still expected that Askren will be able to dominate if he gets top position. Lawler was furious when Dean stopped the bout, insisting he was fine in the choke. I don't have any extra pressure; a fight is just another fight.

A fighter has gone to extreme lengths to get answers to a title fight snub after hunting down UFC boss Dana White at a casino. But Jones has been swarmed in controversy over the last few years, especially when it comes to drug testing.

"Where are you at Dana?"
