UFC 235 Betting: Jon Jones vs. Anthony Smith


The UFC will return to Las Vegas, Nevada and the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday March 2 for UFC 235: Jones vs. Smith. The anticipation is building, as UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones looks to defend his title versus his latest challenger, Anthony Smith. That won’t be the only title fight on the main card; Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will put his belt on the line versus Kamaru Usman. Let’s take a closer look at all of the main bouts along with the UFC betting lines on the board for UFC 235.


UFC 235 Odds: Jon Jones vs. Anthony Smith


While MMA fans can’t wait to see Jones back inside the Octagon, the reality is that this fight isn’t what many expected to see in the main event for UFC 235. The Jones vs. Smith odds have Jones as a huge favourite at -1400, while Smith is a substantial underdog at +750. Despite the lopsided odds for the main event, Jones has insisted that he can’t afford to overlook Smith as a legitimate threat to take his title, but is flattered by the fact that he is such a substantial favourite.


Smith has strung together three straight wins via stoppage in order to earn a title shot. That winning streak includes knockout wins over Rashad Evans and Mauricio Rua, along with a submission win over Volkan Oezdemir in his last outing. However, Jones will undoubtedly be the toughest opponent Smith has ever faced, and the stakes couldn’t possibly be higher. Jones enters this contest with a 23-1 record and his only loss was a disqualification all the way back in 2009.


UFC 235 Odds: Tyron Woodley vs. Kamaru Usman


The other main card title fight will feature the UFC Welterweight champion Woodley putting his title on the line against Usman in the co-main event. Unlike the Jones-Smith fight, this one is expected to be a lot closer. Woodley is undefeated in his last seven fights, including a submission win over Darren Till in his latest bout. However, Usman has won 13 in a row, including consecutive decisions over Demian Maia and Rafael dos Anjos in his last two outings.


Usman has the potential to become a champion at the highest level; the only question now is whether or not he will do it by taking down Woodley in this bout. The champion is listed as a slight favourite at -185 on the MMA betting odds board. Usman is posted at +150.


UFC 235 Odds: Ben Askren vs. Robbie Lawler


With losses to Woodley and dos Anjos over the course of his last three fights, Robbie Lawler has hit a bit of a wall. Now the former UFC Welterweight champion gets another shot to get back on track in an intriguing matchup versus the former ONE Welterweight champion, Ben Askren. Another bout with the potential to earn Fight of the Night honours will provide Askren with the opportunity to capitalize on his UFC debut. He will be aiming to put the entire division on notice with a big win. The UFC essentially “traded” for him (sending Demetrious Johnson to ONE) because he’s viewed as a rising star, so this will be his showcase.


Askren, who’s -300 on the MMA odds board, has all of the tools needed to take down Lawler and immediately vault himself into the welterweight title picture. Lawler comes in at +230.


Other UFC 235 Odds


Taking a look at the rest of the main card, there are a number of exciting bouts to bet on. Cody Garbrandt is as motivated as ever following back-to-back TKO losses to TJ Dillashaw, and now he gets an excellent shot at redemption versus the veteran Pedro Munhoz. Garbrandt was 10-0 and the Bantamweight Champion before running into Dillashaw. Munhoz, who is 15-3 in his career, will probably be the underdog when the UFC odds are posted.


Meanwhile, Tecia Torres should also be motivated to get back on track following a pair of losses. She also has a relatively favourable matchup versus Weili Zhang, who is coming off back-to-back wins in her first two UFC fights. As the No. 7 women’s strawweight fighter, Torres should be favoured when the UFC 235 odds are posted for this fight.
