UFC 185: Pettis vs. dos Anjos fight card

A look at the Saturday, March 14th UFC 185 pay-per-view event in Dallas, Texas, where Anthony Pettis aims to defend his lightweight belt against Rafael dos Anjos.

Next week marks a stretch for the UFC where 3 of their next 4 pay-per-views will feature two title fights. UFC 185 in Dallas, Texas is headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Anthony Pettis and Rafael dos Anjos. The Brazilian has already beaten Donald Cerrone and Ben Henderson, a win over Pettis would make him the WEC slayer. Meanwhile, women's strawweight champion Carla Esparza makes her first title defense against Poland's Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

The rest of the main card is quite compelling, particularly recently dethroned UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks battling Matt Brown. Roy Nelson and Alistair Overeem duke it out in the heavyweight division, while Henry Cejudo tries again to make his flyweight debut as he takes on Chris Cariaso.

A programming note for the preliminary card - Basketball will dominate Fox Sports 1 so the televised prelims will air instead on FX.
