The UFC returns to American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on March 14. Guess who the star of the “SHOW” is?
None other than lightweight champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis, if you couldn’t tell by the billboard above. Pettis puts his strap up for grabs against top contender Rafael dos Anjos in the pay-per-view’s featured contest.
It will be a double-header on the title tilt front that evening, as Carla Esparza makes the first strawweight title defense in company history when she faces Joanna Jedrzejczyk in the co-main attraction.
The lineup is still rounding out, but the bouts that have already been announced are pretty solid.
Here is the show’s current roster:
Daron Cruickshank vs. Beneil Dariush
Alistair Overeem vs. Roy Nelson
Matt Brown vs. Johny Hendricks
Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Carla Esparza (UFC strawweight champion)
Rafael Dos Anjos vs. Anthony Pettis (UFC lightweight champion)
