UFC 185 is shaping up to be a very good card for the Texas audience. Two title fights are scheduled in the main and co-main slots, as Anthony Pettis defends the lightweight crown against Rafael dos Anjos, while new women's strawweight champion Carla Esparza meets undefeated Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

Johny Hendricks returns to the site where he initially won the UFC welterweight title (before losing it in December), as he takes on Matt Brown in what could be a classic. Heavyweights Alistair Overeem and Roy Nelson will square off in Overeem's latest attempt to win back-to-back UFC fights, while Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo fights Chris Cariaso in a flyweight tilt.

Here's an early look at what the March 14th card looks like:

Anthony Pettis vs. Rafael dos Anjos
Carla Esparza vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk
Alistair Overeem vs. Roy Nelson
Johny Hendricks vs. Matt Brown
Henry Cejudo vs. Chris Cariaso
Sam Stout vs. Ross Pearson
Sergio Pettis vs. Ryan Benoit
Roger Narvaez vs. Elias Theodorou
