Current UFC Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.

10/11 Apiece For Either Opponent To Claim Victory In March

It has been announced that Conor McGregor’s next adversary looks likely to be current UFC Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in the UFC 197 in March.

The UFC Lightweight Championship bout between current champion Rafael dos Anjos and current UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor is likely to be a hit with Irish fans. Irishman McGregor now has a global following after his 13-second KO of Brazilian mixed martial artist Jose Aldo last December.

The upcoming bout between McGregor and dos Anjos will give McGregor the chance to strip Dos Anjos of the Lightweight title and become a dual belt holder across two weight divisions.

BoyleSports says they are unable to split the pair and are offering 10/11 your choice on McGregor or Dos Anjos to win the fight. Says Aoife Heffron of BoyleSports, “McGregor voiced his desire to become champion across the Featherweight and Lightweight divisions following his 13 second KO over Jose Aldo. Things may not go as smoothly for The Notorious Irishman as both are priced at 10/11 to win in March.”

So who is Rafael Souza dos Anjos? He is a Brazilian mixed martial artist in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s lightweight division and the current UFC Lightweight Champion. As of January 4, this year, he is at 6th position in the official UFC pound-for-pound rankings and ranked as the number one lightweight and number two pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

Dos Anjos trains out of both Kings MMA in Huntington Beach, California and Evolve MMA in Singapore. He also holds a Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt. Since 2009, he has also trained in Muay Thai. Muay Thai is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterised by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, and shins. Ouch.

Dos Anjos has previously stated that he was a troubled child, getting into fights in his hometown Niterói. He originally started training Brazilian jiu jitsu at age of nine. A light went on in his head, and he stopped fighting on the streets, saving his energy for official jiu jitsu battles.

Dos Anjos is known for aggressive, high-volume striking. While standing, he often backs an opponent against the cage, then varies between flurries and single strikes. He is particularly noted for his left kick to the body and right cross to the head.

After receiving a broken jaw in a fight, dos Anjos now has a titanium-fused jaw that he claims has broken some hands of later opponents.
