However, ahead of the light heavyweight showdown, Anthony Smith appeared on the MMA hour show hosted by Luke Thomas where he revealed that he hasn’t watched any of Jon Jones’ fight in the leadup to their UFC 235 title bout.

Honestly, I haven’t watched, but my coaches have watched [Jon Jones’ fight in the lead up to UFC 235] a ridiculous amount of Jon Jones from the beginning to all the way until recently. But honestly, I have watched him fight Gustafsson live, I haven’t watched Jon Jones fight in a handful of months.” Smith told on the MMA Hour.

I don’t want to get lost in what Jones does……what he doesn’t do because in my head I will start rolling through stuff that I have seen and we’re gonna be in front of each other and I am gonna be expecting certain things…….I am gonna be thinking I see something, but I don’t really see, and maybe I am making stuff up in my head and I don’t really wanna get wrapped up into that.” He said.

Who do you think wins this fight? Will Smith upset Jones at UFC 235?
