UFC 185 will be held on March 14, 2015 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
The event will be the third event that the UFC has hosted in Dallas, Texas.

The event will be headlined by a UFC Lightweight Championship bout between the current champion Anthony Pettis and number one contender Rafael dos Anjos.

Pettis (18-2 MMA) will be making the second defence of his UFC lightweight title. Coming off a coaching stint on the Ultimate Fighter and making his first title defence, Pettis looked sensational against opposite coach and number one contender Gilbert Melendez at UFC 181, submitting ‘El Nino’ via guillotine in the second round.

dos Anjos (23-7 MMA) is riding a three fight winning streak and has won eight of his last nine bouts inside the octagon. In a ‘Performance of the Night’ performance, dos Anjos became the first person to finish Benson Henderson via strikes, then followed that bout with a dominant unanimous decision victory over Nate Diaz in his most recent UFC bout at UFC on FOX in December.

The co-main event features Carla Esparza’s first title defence as the UFC strawweight champion as she takes on Poland’s own Joanna Jędrzejczyk.
