UFC light-heavyweight world champion Jon "Bones" Jones calmly brushed off the challenge of Anthony Smith to retain his world title in Las Vegas at UFC 235.

He went big-name hunting in the media - names like Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz. It's not even a guy fans want to see. I still can't believe the UFC on ESPN.

"I just felt like Ben wanted to compete against the best guys, be treated fairly, be paid well and keep dominating, so I didn't know if he had to be in the UFC to actually facilitate those wants and needs", Woodley said.

"I have to go stomp Usman".

This fight is fascinating and one I think the oddsmakers have got wrong.

I'm picking Zabit to win this fight. I took the time to learn everything. He'll have a short layoff as he prepares to defend his title for the ninth time against Smith. Woodley is now at three title defenses but says the era in which he's competing should be considered.

"Kamaru came out and he brought it", Woodley said. "I'm fighting the best fighters in the sport, at the best time of the sport". I know I'm a hard guy to deal with. I am the real champion, the people's champion. Woodley is known for focusing on countering opponents rather than pushing the action, which could result in a bit of a chess match between him and Usman as the two men look to get to the mat in an advantageous position.

Nonetheless, UFC Welterweight Colby Covington made one of the most dramatic workout you'll ever see on Thursday afternoon. And he has constantly spoken of his belief that he is the best welterweight fighter in the world.

If Tyron Woodley is unseated as champion, it's not out of the question that Askren could be in title contention with a victory.

It's been years since Usman has been "home", but he still feels a very strong connection to his place of birth. He smothered the former lightweight champ against the fence and utilized his size advantage. This is a quick turn around for Jones after his last fight in December.

A lot of the discussion surrounding this bout has been around the fact that Woodley is seemingly a better version of Usman.

Woodley's game plan and body language suggested defeat early. You can't afford any mistakes coming in on T-Wood.

Woodley (19-4-1) was never in the fight. If he struggles there, he should try to pepper the former champion from the outside and force Lawler to charge so he can change levels and get a takedown in the middle of the cage. He's also well acclimated to the stage and the championship rounds. Usman also hasn't had a finish since 2017, but has shown himself to be a fearsome fighter in his own right.

Covington went live on his Instagram Story as he walked straight up to White, who was playing blackjack and was understandably surprised to see the former interim 170-pound titleholder.
