Anthony Smith will soon get his wish to fight Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight championship at UFC 235 as Dana White told TMZ that the matchup is in works for March’s pay-per-view event. The fight will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

According to White, the fight will go ahead as long as Nevada State Athletic commission grants him a license. His last fight against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 was forced to be moved from Las Vegas to Inglewood after a urine sample collected from the American led to an “atypical finding”.

Anthony Smith is being written off by a lot of people and he has targeted a fight against Jones since June of last year. He has since defeated Rashad Evans and Volkan Oezdemir.

This isn’t an accident that I ended up here, and I’m not surprised,” Smith said. “I know that everyone’s pretending like I’m being gifted something and that it was just up in the air and no one knew who it was going to be. I knew I was going to fight Jon Jones as soon as I got done beating Oezdemir.

Anthony Smith is ready to ‘die trying’ to take the UFC title off Jon Jones.

I’m going to be a world champion, or I’m going to be the first guy to die in the octagon trying,” he said. “I believe that, and I’m OK with that. I made peace with whatever I’ve got to lose, or whatever I’ve got to sacrifice to get there.
