JNPO: Jon Jones-Anthony Smith and the potential of UFC 235

It's been more than two years since former MMA Junkie editor and current ESPN.com writer Dann Stupp was on my podcast and with such a big fight card this weekend, there was no better time to bring him back to Josh Nason's Punch-Out.

In our 45-minute chat found below, we hit on several topics:

  • A high-level preview of Saturday's UFC 235 which is an on-paper contender for fight card of the year
  • Why the unheralded Anthony Smith getting a shot at light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is so important
  • Is the matchmaking right for Ben Askren vs. Robbie Lawler?
  • Why did I feel nothing inside when the UFC announced an interim lightweight title fight between Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier?
  • The sad turn of events for the family of Matt Hughes
  • Why a bad knockout loss Saturday could end the career of Diego Sanchez

Hear that and more on a new JNPO immediately. Can you do no less?
