UFC 235: Jon Jones retains light heavyweight belt

UFC 235 8 burning questions around Jones-Smith Woodley Usman title fights

He was scheduled for a title fight against Woodley at UFC 228 in September, but was unable to fight on that date after having surgery to correct a nasal issue, according to sources.

Although they're always going to be an asterisk alongside Jon Jones' name, there's no denying that there's always been excitement surrounding a potential move to the heavyweight division.

"Once we emigrated, I had to assimilate and partake in the sports that were big in the USA, and I found wrestling, and that is when I realised what I wanted to do", said Usman. She said, 'Oh, I can meet you there.' I said, 'No, you can't get in, you can't get on the list.' So I had to wait there and she had to test me at 1 a.m. Usman celebrated in the cage with his daughter before his hand was raised in victory.

"I remember it like it was yesterday", said the man who was born in Benin City in Nigeria's south. "I had just got into the sport, I didn't know much". He won his first eight UFC bouts and battered ex-champ Rafael Dos Anjos last November to earn his shot at Woodley's belt. I was ready for this fight.

Will a clear and calculating mind followed by natural strengths see Usman break the record books tomorrow?

Usman's best round of the fight was the fourth.

He is unequivocally a better technical striker, has fought stronger competition on a consistent basis and his wrestling ability is at the very least on par with Usman.

"I have no excuses", Woodley said. I really do, or I wouldn't be here. "I would love to run it back again and put on a better performance".

The 31-year-old American finally managed to track down the UFC President and confronted him. "I was mostly surprised at how quickly he got me up and down".

Up to the point of the bulldog choke, Lawler enjoyed tremendous success as he countered an early takedown attempt from "Funky" by slamming him on his head and bloodied Askren up with typically brutal ground and pound. I can't be in a room with that guy. "Everyone is upset with Herb, but he came in and checked on Robbie (in the clinch), and Robbie gave him (no response)". Then, in an unprecedented turn of events, the UFC sent ONE the rights to sign Demetrious Johnson and Askren was given the opportunity to showcase his talents inside the Octagon.

"Where are you at Dana?"

Colby Covington isn't fighting for the UFC's welterweight title this Saturday like he believes he should be, and "Chaos' is doing his best to remind folks of that". All of these questions will be answered in UFC 235. Garbrandt is fighting for the first time since losing back-to-back bouts against rival T.J. Dillashaw.
