Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith will take on the biggest challenge of his career so far when he challenges Jon Jon for his UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 235. The odds are massively stacked against Smith. However, he firmly believes that he is indeed going to finish off Jones.
In a recent interview given to MMA Fighting, Smith boldly claimed that he is going to swing hammers and will finish Jon Jones at UFC 235. Here’s what he had to say:
The odds don’t bother me. But it is crazy. I have been an underdog my whole life. I would imagine that most of my UFC fights, I was the underdog. It is just how it is. But I think that people need to tune in because I am the guy who is going to come across the octagon and not care about who Jon Jones is. I do not care what he is going to do, I don’t care who he has beaten, I don’t care how many titles he has won. It is just like everyone else. I am going to come across the cage and I am going to wing hammers until the last second ticks off the clock or till he is unconscious.
I am going to finish Jon Jones, one way or the other. We can do it on the mat or we can do it on our feet. It really does not matter to me. Everyone is going to see a totally different Jon Jones in there, one that is hurt and one that is nervous.
