    Anthony Pettis vs. Rafael dos Anjos -LW Title Fight
    Carla Esparza vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk -WSW Title Fight
    Johny Hendricks vs. Matt Brown
    Roy Nelson vs. Alistair Overeem
    Ross Pearson vs. Sam Stout
    Daron Cruickshank vs. Deneil Dariush
    Henry Cejudo vs. Chris Cariaso
    Sergio Pettis vs. Ryan Benoit
    Elias Theodorou vs. Roger Narvaez


    Pretty solid PPV event so far. I'd like to see one more solid fight main card fight added because outside of the first four listed I don't see any PPV caliber fights, but the probability they run with this and add some prelim level fights is pretty high. All in all, a really good card though, it took shape rather quickly too. All these fights seem to have been confirmed within the last week or so. What do you guys think of the card?

    Jacare/Romero getting scratched almost threw me into depression.

    I like this card, lots of fun match ups.

    Looking forward to seeing how Elias does, dude seems to have a lot of potential.

    Same. Mir/BF wasn't that big of a loss but Jacare/Romero was a fight I was anticipating to see. I think Jacare should wait for the winner and hope to get the next shot. Sadly, I Don't think he will.

    Damn I have absolutely 0 interest in the women's fight, it's a waste of a main card slot imo.Will not be paying for this event.

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind him getting a title shot right now, but it looks like the UFC is leaning towards rescheduling. It'll likely main event that free Rio card in late March with that Faber/Assuncao fight co-maining it.

    Cejudo vs Chariaso (who comes off a title shot) and Sergio at BW are pretty solid

    Ah so 5 rounds instead of 3, not bad. I think Jacare owns him in the grappling but Romero is a monster. I really hope this gets rescheduled. The Jacare who fought Mousasi, is the best Jacare I've ever seen. His striking, like Werdum's has really come along.

    Lil Pettis' fight is actually at FLW. He dropped back down.

    Definitely agree. He make Mousasi look like a straight chump. Does Jacare train with Cordeiro too? I could have sworn he was at either King's or Black House.

    Cejudo/Cariaso is PPV caliber if Cejudo can make weight.

    Again Pettis Bros on the same card.

    Overall, not a bad one, 6/10.

    I know people want to be upset about it and I get that but 184 is still a good card (although it's not the super awesome stacked card it would've been with Jacare/Romero on it). It's still a good card once you get over the disappointment of things.

    Really do like UFC 185, it's not going to sell a million buys but it's a solid show.

    Diego Sanchez wants to fight Nate Diaz on this card. I'm hoping this works out and that can be the final main card fight.
