UFC Lightweight Anthony Pettis

“Welcome To The Show” is the official tagline for UFC 185, in honor of lightweight champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis as he defends his belt against Rafael Dos Anjos in the March 14 event.

The 155-pound crown won’t be the only hardware up for grabs that evening. Carla Esparza makes the first-ever strawweight title defense in UFC history when she meets Joanna Jedrzejczyk in the co-featured attraction.

A possible top contender shootout between former champ Johny Hendricks and Matt Brown gets third-to-top billing.

American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas is the host site.
