Of course, the two are booked to fight at the March 14th event, which will go down at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
While the betting lines, and seemingly most pundits, have the lightweight champ Pettis as the favorite, this shouldn’t diminish what dos Anjos has accomplished. Nor does it mean the Brazilian fighter isn’t one of the division’s best and most well rounded fighters. Aside from a decision loss to fellow contender Khabib Nurmagomedov, dos Anjos has been on a serious roll, which includes a win over another top 155’er in Donald Cerrone.
You can watch that fight, which took place in August, 2013, below.
