@hyrm I also think santos gets ko'd not enough reach. But I do think walker or reyes could beat him.
By the way jon jones said he wants to fight adesanya eventually!  How great would that be.

Walker have some chin problem! 

I'm not high on Adesanya. He did not look good agaitns Silva. He may beat Gastelum but at the moment he face a complete fighter like Whitaker, Romero or Souza he will get is ass kick

UFC 235 Wiki Update Wiki

UFC 235 was a mixed martial arts event held on March 2nd, 2019.
The event saw Jon Jones defend his Light Heavyweight belt against Anthony Smith in the main event. Jones beat Smith through decision. The co-main event saw Kamaru Usman becoming the Welterweight Champion by beating Tyron Woodley through decision.
A bout between Robbie Lawler and UFC newcomer Ben Askren was originally scheduled for UFC 233, but after the cancellation of that card the bout was moved to UFC 235. Ben Askren beat Lawler by first round referee stoppage. The stoppage is controversial, as Lawler was not unconscious at the moment referee Herb Dean stopped the bout.
