There’s just two days go until Jon Jones and Anthony Smith lock horns in the upcoming UFC 235 main event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Jones will defend his light heavyweight title for the first time since 2015, when he cruised to a unanimous decision win over Daniel Cormier at 182.

Jones’ opponent, Anthony Smith, is a massive betting underdog ahead of Saturday night’s title clash, but ‘Lionheart’ fully believes he is capable of pulling off the upset on fight night. The 30-year-old is on a three-fight win streak (2 KO’s, 1 submission) and most recently submitted former light heavyweight title challenger Volkan Oezdemir at UFC Fight Night 138.

Jones and Smith faced off at the UFC 235 media day on Wednesday - check out the video below.

Also on the UFC 235 main card: A welterweight title clash between defending champion Tyron Woodley and top contender Kamaru Usman, and a pivotal welterweight bout between Ben Askren and Robbie Lawler.

UFC 235: Jones vs. Smith takes place this Saturday, March 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
