Rafael dos Anjos may not be one of the UFC’s biggest draws, but that doesn’t change the fact he’s one of the most complete and talented lightweights in the game. After all, we are talking about someone who is 9-1 in his last 10 fights, and has defeated names like Donald Cerrone, Benson Henderson and Anthony Pettis along the way.
His only defeat during that time is to Khabib Nurmagomedov, and there’s no shame in that.
On Saturday, RDA will look to score his first title defense, against a familiar foe in Cerrone. The two met in August, 2013, and dos Anjos won the bout via UD.
Recently RDA spoke with the UFC’s Megan Olivi for Fight Pass, and you can catch a preview of the interview below.
