Jon ‘Bones’ Jones is back and a huge threat in the UFC. On Saturday, Jones will defend his light heavyweight title against Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith.
UFC 235 will see Jones in his second bout since returning from his suspension. In December of 2018, he returned to the octagon and defeated Alexander Gustafsson. Jones’ last loss came in 2009 against Matt Hamill in The Ultimate Fighter 10 finale.
Smith will enter this fight 30 years old with a record of 31-13-0. Smith has won his last three bouts. Two of those fights failed to make it out of the first round. At UFC Fight Night in February of 2018, Smith was able to handle Rashad Evans in 53 seconds.
Online bookmaker Top Bet unsurprisingly has Jones at -900 for this bout.
Jones is one year older than Smith and will be 31 at the time of the fight. As mentioned, Jones has one loss under his belt. Since making his debut in 2008, Jones has 23 wins. Ten of them have come by KO and six have come via submission.
Reach will be a huge factor in this bout. Jones has an eight-inch reach advantage over Smith.
Smith will be trying to take the same belt off Jones that he has successfully defended eight times in a row. Jones is considered to be one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time.
Jones’ most challenging battles have not been inside the octagon but rather with performance-enhancing drugs. Jones mentioned that he is being tested twice a week leading into UFC 235. Can Jones remain clean heading into the event?
No doubt, Smith is the underdog in this bout. Can he shock the world and walk away from UFC 235 as the light heavyweight champion?
