The first Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) pay-per-view (PPV) event that is worth paying for in 2019 is a phenomenal card top to bottom. The main event is a light heavyweight title fight between, the champion, Jon “Bones” Jones, and perennially underestimated challenger, Anthony “Lionheart” Smith . The co-main event is a welterweight title tilt between champion Tyron Woodley, and Kamaru Unman . We’ve also got fighters of interest on the card such as Robbie Lawler, Ben Askren, Cody Garbrandt, Ovince St. Preux, and Marlon Vera. There are a total of four champions or former champions on the main card portion and all but two of the fighters who are set to compete on the other side of a paywall have an official ranking next to their name.
Although the fight card is certain to deliver memorable moments of violence, more valuable than walking around with $65 dollars in your pocket, we understand that giving money to the UFC might not be an option right now. So SBN MMA’s Flyin’ Brian J has given his money to Dana White and the gang for the chance to put his peepers on this event. He actually bought the PPV a while back with the hopes that the card stayed in tact. With his purchase, he aims to provide you with a radio-style play-by-play broadcast of each groin-strike, ripping body-shot, inverted triangle, or lopsided decision that is beyond the monetary blockade.
He might be uglier than Jon Jones drug test, but during the entirety of UFC 235’s PPV main card Flyin’ Brian will be doing his best to keep fight fans informed on the, hopefully, intoxicating displays of mixed martial arts (MMA) violence starting at 10 p.m. ET in the video player above.
