UFC’s Colby Covington Confronts Dana White At Casino Over UFC 235 Dispute

USA TODAY Sports  Stephen R. Sylvanie

Just minutes after Kamaru Usman dominated Tyron Woodley to become the new UFC welterweight champion, he already had his next opponent lined up.

According to officials, UFC 235 drew a crowd of 14,790 to T-Mobile Arena, which has a capacity upward of 20,000 for boxing and mixed martial arts events.

It's a tricky matchup for Woodley, who will be facing a much more active striker in Usman, who also has the wrestling base to get into the clinch and avoid that trademark punching power than has allowed Woodley to get the finish in 12 of his 19 wins.

Although the unbeaten former collegiate wrestling star had dominated competition around the world for almost a decade, his tactical fighting style and his personal beefs with UFC President Dana White had kept him off the sport's biggest stage - and Askren insists he was at peace with it all.

Luckily for Jones, Smith passed up an opportunity to take the fight via disqualification. Usman wasn't clear on what he plans on doing next, other than putting a beating on Colby Covington, a man who will likely serve as his first title defense.

"I want to know how long until Dana bitches about that stoppage", Askren said.

People have wanted to see this guy in with the world's very best for years and Joe Rogan is no different.

Red flags were brought on and Ferrari's plans of getting some important laps and data under their belt went out of the window. Gasly lost control of the RB15 as he entered the corner, spun through the gravel and made heavy contact with the barriers.

"I want to win (the belt), I don't want to steal it, you know", Smith explained afterward. Even so, many observers believe he is the most gifted MMA fighter to ever set foot in the cage.

Light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones will be headlining against Anthony Smith, a versatile journeyman on a three-fight win streak.

"I was bleeding all over the place, so I just squeezed as hard as I could", Ascran said.

Askren is a brilliant wrestler but his stand-up is lacking and against someone like Lawler, if he struggles to ground the former UFC champion he could be on the end of some big punches.

The disputed victory gave the 34-year-old Askren a chance to incite the crowd and poke the bear in the direction of UFC president Dana White, who feuded with Askren for years while preventing the former Bellator MMA and ONE Championship titleholder from signing with the promotion.

"They tested me Super Bowl weekend", Woodley said at the UFC 235 media lunch (via MMA Fighting). In a fight when the person who riots first is going to lose Robbie Lawler will win every time. An additional four prelim bouts followed on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET, with the night's five-fight main card aired live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET. "I'm putting my country on the map and I can't wait to bring the UFC back to my home". This is the toughest fight Askren's career to date and one where a lot of questions will be answered.
