UFC 235: Kamaru Usman manhandles Tyron Woodley to claim welterweight title

Jon Jones has tamed the lion. I'm coming for you boy. He is the youngest fighter to ever win a championship at age 23. The co-main event is a welterweight title fight between Tyron Woodley and Kamaru Usman.

And will it could be the beginning of attractive times as fighters such as Israel (Adesanya), Don Madge (South Africa) and Champion Dalcha (DRC) look to follow in his footsteps and bring some titles "home". That makes him extremely hard to beat. "I have to show him my heart, and do whatever it takes", said Usman.

Can Usman be the man to crack that case? While their strikes might be packed with power, the fights can be lumbering and lacking in action.

In fact, Askren feels Kamaru Usman - who he calls "Marty" - "fought like a b***h". Askren makes his UFC debut against an entertaining Lawler. Will Ben Askren bring his ONE Championship and Bellator dominance to the UFC? Both are dominant wrestlers who rely on a sprawl heavy game plan to force outmatched opponents to stand and trade with them, though in the champions case a tendency to come well prepared with an excellent game plan and impeccable execution are increasingly becoming hallmarks of a Woodley title reign. Lawler with a victory could set up fights with either Colby Covington or Santiago Ponzinibbio to get back into title contention. He told Joe Rogan that he hasn't even been punched in the last three years of his fighting career. He speaks his mind no matter what.

Although the unbeaten former collegiate wrestling star had dominated competition around the world for almost a decade, his tactical fighting style and his personal beefs with UFC President Dana White had kept him off the sport's biggest stage - and Askren insists he was at peace with it all. Askren has been outspoken about Dana and every UFC fighter on the roster. "Ruthless", as he's known in the MMA world, is one of the greatest welterweights of all-time and truly one of the most legendary warriors in the UFC history. This will be Lawler's first fight since a December 2017 bout with dos Anjos, a fight in which he tore his ACL. Jones then announced that he was going to use his workout time to take pictures with fans promising to take a picture with everyone in the audience.

The answer is no. That's what Robbie wants. A record like that can put pressure on any seasoned fighter but that is certainly not the case for Jones.

Askren battled back from the brink of defeat, as Robbie Lawler had the fight on the edge of being stopped. Askren never betrayed much dissatisfaction with his situation, praising the promotions that employed him while the UFC ignored him. Askren asked in his post-fight interview.
