The UFC is headed to Texas this week with an ESPN card that feels very much like a pretty typical fight night offering. The welterweight top contenders bout at the top between Rafeal dos Anjos and Leon Edwards promises to be a skilled, multi-faceted competition, and James Vick vs. Dan Hooker should be a rock solid high level lightweight contest. But much of the rest of the night’s action will depend on some fighters who trend toward uneven performances.
