UFC 184: Rousey vs. Zingano fight card

A look at the Saturday, February 28th UFC 184 pay-per-view at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. The main event is a women's bantamweight title fight between reigning champion Ronda Rousey and challenger Cat Zingano.

I know UFC 184 doesn't look that appealing to your wallet, but this wasn't the planned card. We were supposed to have a main event between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort, which was postponed to May. A middleweight bout between Ronaldo Souza and Yoel Romero was postponed to April after Jacare contracted pneumonia. Antonio Silva and Frank Mir fought last night in Porto Alegre, but they were plucked off of the 184 main card to rescue the Porto Alegre main event.

So now, we are left with a very different looking main card than was conceived at the start of the year. Ronda Rousey fights Cat Zingano in the main event, but the co-main is the UFC debut of Holly Holm against Raquel Pennington. Josh Koscheck battles Jake Ellenberger in a must-win situation, while the PPV opens with lightweight prospect Tony Ferguson against veteran Gleison Tibau, followed by a welterweight clash between Alan Jouban and Rich Walsh.

Lest we forget the REAL reason we're all going to tune into UFC 184 on February 28th - Kid Yamamoto is back! The Japanese star hasn't won a fight since 2010, hasn't fought since 2012, and is 0-3 in the UFC, but he's still very much on the roster. Yamamoto meets Roman Salazar on the Fox Sports 1 preliminary card.
