UFC 235 features the greatest raw talent the world of MMA has ever seen. There is no arguing that Jon Jones is the greatest fighter to ever grace the octagon and now that he has put his troubles behind him (hopefully) we get to see him in his prime and putting on the kind of performances that we should have been seeing all along.

Jones has a new found drive and focus and to be blunt, he is terrifying. He learned his lesson about taking opponents lightly when he fought Alexander the first time and nearly lost a decision and he has vowed never to make that mistake again. Because Jon has this kind of focus we can count on him expending maximum effort and maximum focus in training camp. When Jon gets the most out of a training camp he finishes his opponents and I fully expect that to be how Saturday’s main event plays out.

Jon Jones has a height and reach advantage over just about everybody and it is surprising that a challenger moving up from 185 can match the physicality of the 205 pound champion. Jon Jones is a master of taking weapons away from his opponents and when they are forced to shell up and limit their offence that is when he pounces and goes for the kill.

Anthony Smith lives and dies by the sword in his MMA fights. He goes for the finish almost to a fault. With a 31-13 record Smith has only seen the judges score cards 3 times. He has been KOd/TKOd 8 times, submitted 4 times, and he has won by finish 28 out of his 31 victories. With the amount of KO losses on Smiths record I have serious questions about his chin and against the only man to KO current heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier we know that Jon has the power to put a guy like Smith away. Jon also has the submission skills to submit a lesser fighter. We have watched him submit legends of the sport like Lyoto Machida in his prime.

IF Anthony smith has any shot in this fight it is going to be a blitz where he catches Jon completely off guard and cracks him in a way nobody ever has. If you cash a +950 Smith by KO bet on that then congratulations. I am not a fan of laying chalk and i think the only value on this

fight is that it doesn't go to decision. Smith does not and cannot go to decision. When it becomes obvious that he will lose a fight he goes for broke and gets finished himself in the process. Rather than laying the insane price with Jon we will take a small discount and enjoy a fight where we practically know that one of these two fighters is hitting the canvas or tapping before round 5.
