    Anthony Pettis vs. Rafael dos Anjos for Lightweight Title.
    Carla Esparza vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk for Strawweight Title
    Johnny Hendricks vs Matt Brown
    Roy Nelson vs. Alistair Overeem
    Chris Cariaso vs. Henry Cejudo
    Ryan Benoit vs. Sergio Pettis

    Pretty solid. Maybe not "stacked" but solid.

    Who you guys got?

    Pettis
    Esparza
    Brown (Maybe wishful thinking, but I never root against Brown)
    Nelson
    Cejudo
    Pettis

    Don't get too excited. I imagine that card will look drastically different by the time it airs.

    Surprised that Pettis, Esparza, and Cejudo aren't fighting on the Mexico card this summer...

    Three main card worthy fights + women's belt. Nearly there.

    Great cards are only 1-2 injuries away from being terrible/cancelled

    Really?

    Anthony Pettis vs. Rafael dos Anjos for Lightweight Title. - Mismatch - Ends in 2 rounds
    Carla Esparza vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk for Strawweight Title - ?????
    Johnny Hendricks vs Matt Brown - Good fight
    Roy Nelson vs. Alistair Overeem - Good fight
    Chris Cariaso vs. Henry Cejudo - FB prelims
    Ryan Benoit vs. Sergio Pettis - FB prelims

    If that is the main card, I think I'll skip it

    Jesus. This card is fun and people will still bitch. Think if it gets one more big fight, I'd call it stacked.

    I'm with you. If this were a fight night, then yeah that is a pretty serious card. But a $60+ PPV...? fuck no.

    Hopefully the women's fight gets scratched. I've never even heard of either of them and they are fighting for a title. Lol. UFC gold used to mean something now they hand out belts like its WWE

    I completely agree this card is ass.
    WMMA sucks and Carla is the most boring fighter I've ever seen
    Chris Cariaso vs Too Much Hype not enough weight cutting, meaningless fight that won't even be exciting

    I don't understand why they dilute PPV's with women fights

    I would say the card is already stacked. When did Esparza/Joanna get added? I was happy with the card when I thought Johny/Brown was the Co main. Plus you forgot Theodorou/Narvaez, which could be a solid fight. Narvaez brings it. Ill bet one more bigger fight and some other fun fights get added too. Texas cards are always fun. Id put money that Paige Van Zant vs Angela Hill goes down on this card as well.

    Fun looking card so far.
