The UFC’s upcoming International Fight Week has gotten even more stacked, as the promotion has confirmed that lightweight champs Rafael dos Anjos will battle Eddie Alvarez on July 7th. The event will be broadcast on Fight Pass.
The bout will be main event for UFC Fight Night 90, and will take place before the TUF 23 Finale the next day, and UFC 200 on the 9th. So, yeah, if you love MMA, Vegas is the place to be that week, no question.
Dos Anjos (25-7) is looking to build on his first title defense in December, when he stormed through Donald Cerrone. As you know, RDA was supposed to fight Conor McGregor last month, but a broken foot forced his withdrawal.
Alvarez (27-4) on the other hand, worked his way to a split decision win over former champ Anthony Pettis in January.
So, there you go. Between McGregor – Diaz II, Tate – Nunes, Aldo – Edgar II, Jedrzejczyk – Gadelha, and Velasquez – Browne, among others, July 7th through July 9th should be crazy.
