Jon Jones & Tyron Woodley Fights Set To Light Up UFC 235

February 27, 2019 by Landon Wheeler

Las Vegas is the official fight capital of the world and fight fans are eager to attend UFC 235 which is scheduled to take place at the T-Mobile Arena on March 2nd.

There are a number of great fights on the card but the two fights that will get most of the attention are the two title fights.

Jon Jones Makes Quick Return To The Octagon

Jon ‘Bones’ Jones has had very little Octagon time during the past five years and the reasons for that have been covered extensively in the media. Jones is looking to make up for lost time by making a quick return to the Octagon considering his last fight against Gustafasson was on December 30, 2018.

Jon Jones who is considered by many to be the Greatest of All Time in the MMA World wants to fight a minimum of 3 times in 2019. He will take on Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith who is very much the underdog going into a fight against Jones who is the UFC Lightheavyweight champion.

Should Jones do what everyone expects and finish his opponent, it will be interesting to see who he decides to fight next.

Tyron Woodley – Looking To Establish His Legacy

Tyron Woodley will defend his UFC Welterweight belt against Kamarau Usman and if he wins, he will take another step in the direction of establishing himself as one of the greatest Welterweight champions in the UFC.

Should Woodley successfully defend his belt, he will be interested in calling out the controversial ‘Colby Covington who should have been fighting in the place of Usman as he was the interim champion.

Other Fights To Watch Out For

Former Bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt makes his return to the Octagon against Pedro Munhoz. This is an important fight for Garbrandt given the fact that he is coming off two losses in title fights against current champ TJ Dillashaw.

Dillashaw has shown the bantamweight roster that Garbrandt does not have a good chin. If he ends up losing his third fight in a row, it could force Garbrandt to either go up or down a weight class.

Jeremy Stephens vs. Zabit Magomedsharipov

This is going to be one fantastic fight as Stephens is coming off a loss to Jose Aldo and admitted that he was suicidal after that loss. He is fighting Zabit who is clearly one of the most exciting young fighters in the UFC who will be looking to take out Stephens and take another step towards a title shot.
