A trio of high-profile fights are showcased on the poster for UFC 235.

Light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and challenger Anthony Smith top the bill for the UFC’s next pay-per-view, which takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on March 2. Joining them on are welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and challenger Kamaru Usman, and undefeated debutant Ben Askren, who faces former welterweight titleholder Robbie Lawler.

This will be Jones’s first title defense in his second reign as light heavyweight champion, while Smith gets his first shot at UFC gold in his 45th pro bout.

In the co-headliner, Woodley seeks his fifth successful title defense. He will have to stop Usman, a former Ultimate Fighter winner who is unbeaten in nine UFC appearances.

Also on the main card, Lawler looks to become the first man to defeat Askren, a former welterweight champion in the Bellator and ONE Championship promotions.
