UFC 235 took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with a stacked undercard and a terrific main event. The main event was headlined by UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones as he was defending it against Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith. Jones comfortably won the fight via unanimous decision as all the three judges had it 48-44 in the favour of Jones. In the last fourth round, two-points were deducted off Jones but illegal knee, but Smith refused to take a DQ win.

In the Co-main event, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley took on the Nigerian nightmare Kamaru Usman. This fight was complete one-sided domination by Usman. He won the fight 50-44, 50-44, and 50-45 on the judges’ scorecard. With this win, Usman is now the new UFC welterweight champion and is on a 14-fight winning streak. He is 10-0 in the UFC.

Further down on the card, Ben Askren made his UFC debut against Robbie Lawler. The fight started off wild in the opening round as Lawler picked Askren up in a clinch and slammed him down on the canvas and then he went on to pound on him with his elbows which cut opened Askren’s face. However, Askren was able to survive the initial assault by Lawler and caught him in a clinch and moved to the bulldog choke position. Referee Herb Dean getting no response from Lawler and seeing his left arm appear to go limp, he stopped the fight. But Lawler then immediately got up to protest the decision.

Then former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt took on Pedro Munhoz on the opening Pay-per-view card. Both fighters engaged in a wild slugfest throwing hard shots back and forth. Then out of nowhere, Munhoz landed a huge counter right to the jaw of Cody and knocked him out. This is the third straight knockout loss for Cody Garbrandt.
