UFC 235 odds, lines, fight card: Jon Jones, Tyron Woodley favored to retain titles

Saturday night, the UFC 235 event will take place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The second UFC pay-per-view of the year is a massive one, with two championships set to be defended in the headliners, and it also features the long-awaited promotional debut of one of the best welterweights in the world 

In the main event, Jon Jones will make his first defense of the light heavyweight title since he reclaimed it at UFC 232 with a victory over Alexander Gustafsson in their rematch. Jones will be putting the title on the line against Anthony “Lionheart” Smith, who may not be the most enticing name for a min event slot, but it’s hard to argue that the veteran hasn’t earned at least one opportunity at the 205-pound championship after three victories in four fights last year. 

The co-main event sees welterweight champion Tyron Woodley attempt to make the fifth successful defense of his 170-pound title when he squares off with maybe his most formidable foe yet in the “Nigerian Nightmare” Kamaru Usman. In his last defense at UFC 228 in September 2018, Woodley stopped another rising welterweight contender threatening his throne, Darren Till, in the second round via submission. 

In addition to the championship bouts headlining the card, UFC 235 will also feature the UFC debut of welterweight sensation Ben Askren.
