Bet on UFC 185 Odds

This fight will likely feature some striking in the early going. Pettis definitely has the edge in regards to technique and diversity. Dos Anjos has good power, but is much more of a wild swinger. Dos Anjos’ strength is his ground and submission game. He will ideally want to get Pettis on the ground, but the champion has shown great submissions off his back as of late, tapping out both Ben Henderson and Gilbert Melendez in his last two fights. Pettis could be the most under-valued fighter in the UFC right now and that is a reason he is the big favorite to win.
