Jon Jones faces Anthony Smith as favourite on UFC 235 odds

Anthony Smith

Covington, who is ranked ahead of Usman, has not fought in the UFC since defeating Rafael dos Anjos in June 2018 for the interim welterweight title.

In the co-main event at UFC 235, Tyron Woodley (-165) will make his fifth welterweight title defense against Kamaru Usman (+135).

Usman also shared the moment with his daughter.

Covington made headlines last June, when he blasted the "Filthadelphia Eagles" for not visiting the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win.

Speaking to MMAFighting.com, Covington confirmed that he wanted to be released if he wasn't given the title fight next.

Liverpool, Spurs face crucial derby battles as title hots up
But there's also the Rome derby to look forward to as Lazio and Roma go head to head with both teams fighting for a top four spot. Mane's cheeky back-heel had the Liverpool star trending on social media, with fans in awe of his remarkably bold effort.

UFC 235 is going down Saturday night, March 2, 2019 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las, Vegs Nevada live on PPV starting at 10 pm. He moved to the Singapore-based One Championship and won another title, defending that belt four times while fighting in China, the Philippines and the United Arab Emirates. Shortly thereafter UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley, Askren's friend and teammate, had a much more hard night.

-155: Tyron Woodley moneyline to beat Kamaru Usman.

"I feel like right now I'm at my absolute best", Jones said at the pre-fight press conference. I'm coming for you boy.

After a close opening round, Usman dominated the second with top control on Woodley, who couldn't escape or avoid Usman's elbows. Usman repeatedly took the one-time Missouri wrestling star down and held him, as Woodley could generate no offense. "I'm gonna be here.' [She said, ] 'Oh let me call them and ask them if I can test you in the morning.' They said, 'No, I gotta test you now'". Even so, many observers believe he is the most gifted MMA fighter to ever set foot in the cage. Jon Jones once again demonstrated why he is considered the best UFC fighter of all-time as he imposed his will on Anthony Smith. In a fight that featured an insane amount of violence, drama, suspense, heart and controversy packed into just over three minutes of action, Askren survived almost being stopped to submit former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler on Saturday at UFC 235 in Las Vegas. It's going to mean a lot to me beating these up-and-comers, the guys who are a little younger than me. "Guys who run karate dojos and stuff, they don't want us saying "f- this guy" or "f- that guy" and fighting on stage".

Do you think we'll see these two wrestling specialists fight in the near future? Smith defeated mixed martial arts legends in Rashad Evans and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua with first-round knockouts then followed up with a submission over former title challenger Volkan Oezdemir. "I was prepared for this fight".
