It’s easily the best MMA card of this year so much on Saturday night from Las Vegas as a light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and UFC 235 is highlighted by rival Anthony Smith.

Jones tested positive and also the state of Nevada would not give a licence to fight to him. So the entire card, in a move, was altered to Los Angeles. The 30-year-old Smith is a former middleweight who has fought at pounds for under a year. He is on an impressive series over Mauricio Rua Volkan Oezdemir and Rashad Evans. There is some discussion Jones may face Cormier, the heavyweight champ, with a win although Jones (unofficially) has beaten him twice .
