Jon Jones vs. Anthony Smith
Records: Jones (23-1), Smith (31-13)
Division: Light heavyweight
UFC Odds: Smith +500, Jones -850 Prediction: Jones by choice Mixed martial arts dropped one of its greats lately to retirement in Georges St-Pierre the Canadian MMA fighter. GSP is among the brief list of the finest of all time irrespective of division. The best? An individual can make an argument for the 31-year-old Jones. In the Octagon, he has no peer. He seems to derail his career whether because of legal issues or drug tests that are failing. Jones became the youngest champion in UFC history, and he never lost it in the Octagon. But a drug test would come out following Jones beat on Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 and Jones was suspended and stripped of this light heavyweight belt.
Jones made it back with a knockout of Alexander Gustafsson in December, but that arrived with the asterisk. Jones tested positive as well as also the state of Nevada would not give him a licence. So the card, at a movement, was altered to Los Angeles. The Smith is a former middleweight that has fought pounds for less than a year. He is on an impressive series over Mauricio Rua Volkan Oezdemir and Rashad Evans. There is some talk Jones may face Cormier, the heavyweight champ, with a win although Jones (unofficially) has beaten him twice .
