On Saturday, March 14, 2015, the UFC heads to the American Airlines Center in Dallas for UFC 185: Pettis vs. dos Anjos where not one, but two UFC titles will be on the line.

In the co-main event of the evening, newly crowned women’s strawweight champion Carla Esparza looks to defend her title against number one contender Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Then in the main event of the evening, UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis will look to defend his title for the second time against dangerous challenger Rafael dos Anjos.

The UFC has received a lot of criticism about the quality of their pay per view offerings but UFC 185 should make a lot of fans happy. It’s a card filled with name fighters, interesting matchups and excellent opportunities for the gamblers out there.

Henry Cejudo, -580 vs. Chris Cariaso, +440

No disrespect to Cariaso, but this fight is all about Cejudo. In his first outing with the UFC Cejudo was expected to fight at 125, but he couldn’t make the weight and the fight was scrapped at the last minute. Then in his official UFC debut at 135, Cejudo looked extremely impressive. Now Cejudo is again going to attempt to make 125 and all eyes will be on him at the weigh-in.

Cariaso is an extremely tough fighter, but even though he is coming off of a title fight, he isn’t a true elite. At best, he’s the UFC flyweight top 10 gatekeeper. If Cejudo can get past Cariaso in impressive fashion, then he will be on the fast track to a title shot.

Play: At -152, take Cejudo to win by decision

Alistair Overeem, -210 vs. Roy Nelson, +175

Nelson vs. Overeem is a really intriguing bout between two heavyweights desperately looking to remain somewhat relevant in the UFC’s heavyweight division. On paper, this is a fight Overeem should win handily. Even though Nelson is a dangerous grappler he prefers to stand and strike. Overeem is one of the best technical strikers in the heavyweight division and his reach should allow him to control the distance and keep Nelson on the outside.

But we all know Overeem has a knack for losing fights he shouldn’t and we all know Overeem can’t take a punch. Nelson may not be the most gifted athlete in the sport or the most technical striker, but he does pack a lot of power in his overhand right.

Play: Take Nelson to win and at +220 take him to win by TKO/KO

Johnny Hendricks, -350 vs. Matt Brown, +290

This bout between Hendricks and Brown has the potential to steal the show. Hendricks is the former UFC welterweight champion who is looking to rebound from an utterly unimpressive performance against Robbie Lawler. While Brown is looking to get back to his winning ways; he too lost to Lawler in his last outing.

If Hendricks comes in in shape and on point for this bout, then he should win relatively easily. But Hendricks has had two terrible weight cuts in a row now and it has been evident in his performances. Brown might not be the best fighter in the world, but his toughness and grit allows him to compete with anyone.

Play: At +100, take Hendricks by decision

Carla Esparza, -165 vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk, +145

This title bout between Esparza and Jedrzejczyk is a classic grappler vs. striker bout that fans of old school MMA will love. Jedrzejczyk has a lot of tools and she is extremely talented on the feet, but it’s hard to see her being able to stop Esparza’s takedowns. Esparza’s ground game solid and her top game is suffocating.

Play: Take Esparza to win and at +450 take her to win by submission

Anthony Pettis, -450 vs. Rafael dos Anjos, +360

Pettis is one of the most dynamic fighters in the sport today and on Saturday we will look to defend his title for the second time against dos Anjos. His striking accuracy and timing are simply fun to watch and his ability to attack with submission is stunning. Pettis is fantastic fighter, but dos Anjos really isn’t getting the respect he deserves.

Dos Anjos doesn’t have the flash Pettis does, but he does have brutal power and his leg kicks can more than slow the champion down. If he can slow Pettis’ movement on the feet he can force him into a dog fight; where dos Anjos is extremely dangerous.

Play: Take dos Anjos to win and at +650 take him to win by decision
