UFC 235 Results: One Champion Retains, One Falls, Ben Askren's Debut

Jon Jones had no trouble defending his title at UFC 235 Saturday night, but the same could not be said for Tyron Woodley.

Jones turned back Anthony Smith despite being docked two points for an illegal knee, remaining UFC light heavyweight champion. The event took place from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The co-main event saw Woodley, the welterweight champion, suffer a one-sided loss via decision to Kamaru Usman. Usman, a former Ultimate Fighter winner, picked Woodley apart for 25 minutes, leaving with the title.

Ben Askren, a former Bellator champion, scored a submission victory over ex-UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler in his debut with the promotion. Askren locked in a bulldog choke after almost being finished, earning the stoppage.
