The UFC is bringing another loaded card to the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas this weekend, as UFC 185 is set to be headlined by two title tilts - Anthony Pettis vs Rafael dos Anjos and Carla Esparza vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

The entirety of the main card is completely stacked, as you also have a very interesting Welterweight tilt between Johny Hendricks and Matt Brown, as well as an intriguing Heavyweight fight between Alistair Overeem and Roy "Big Country" Nelson.

According to the bookmakers, there are three mismatches on the main card and two very close tilts.

Anthony Pettis is currently a big favorite to defeat Rafael dos Anjos, as Pettis is currently listed at -470 to win. This means that you would need to wager a total of $470 on Pettis in order to have a chance of taking home a profit of $100. Dos Anjos, on the other hand, is currently a +375 underdog.

Johny Hendricks, who was originally rumored to be fighting Robbie Lawler for the Welterweight title, is listed at -380 to defeat Matt Brown. There are many who believe that Brown is a live dog to win this fight as he is notoriously tough and hard to finish. The big question mark with Hendricks, as is usually the case, is what kind of shape he is in heading into this fight.

The final mismatch of the main card has Henry Cejudo listed as a -600 favorite to defeat Chris Cariaso.


The two close fights of the main card includes a Women's Strawweight title tilt and a Heavyweight battle between Alistair Overeem and Roy Nelson:

Carla Esparza, -165
Joanna Jedrzejczyk, +145

Alistair Overeem, -190
Roy Nelson, +165

Many people think that the fight between Esparza and Jedrzejczyk is a pick'em. The battle between Overeem and Nelson is set to be a very interesting fight, as Overeem is the more impressive physical specimen but Nelson is notoriously hard to finish and has a chin of granite. In addition, Nelson has some tremendous power and Overeem's chin seems to be degrading with each passing fight.


In short, this card should feature some very close fights and some tremendous finishes. Should be a great card!
