Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the pay-per-view (PPV) market with its UFC 235 mixed martial arts (MMA) event last Sat. night (March 2, 2019) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, headlined by a Light Heavyweight title fight that saw Jon Jones defend the strap after dominating Anthony Smith for five rounds (see it again here).
It’s the stuff legends are made of.
In the co-headlining act, Kamaru Usman became the new Welterweight champion of the world by shutting down Tyron Woodley for five rounds to score a one-sided blowout win (highlights). In the process, “The Nigerian Nightmare” set up a much-desired title fight against Colby Covington.
Also, Ben Askren escaped Robbie Lawler’s brutal strikes to mount a come-from-behind victory to score a submission victory – albeit controversially – in his Octagon debut. Plus, Cody Garbrandt and Pedro Munhoz engaged in a wild back-and-forth brawl to kick off the main card.
Now you can watch it all go down in super-slow motion, courtesy of the “Fight Motion” video embedded above. And for much more on last weekend’s UFC 235 extravaganza, head over to our event archive by clicking here.
