While it’s been announced that Jon Jones will face Anthony Smith in the main event of UFC 235 (maybe), the co-main event was still up in the air. Today it was announced that Tyron Woodley will defend his welterweight title against #1 contender, Kamaru Usman.
This was the fight that needed to happen, so good on the UFC for making it materialize. However, interim-stripped-kind-of-champion, Colby Covington has a strong opinion against this fight. Dana White and company didn’t really seem to care about Colby’s gripe and moved forward without him.
UFC 235 is already shaping up to be a monster of a card. Check out the lineup.
