Next Thursday, July 7th, dos Anjos will attempt to defend the lightweight belt for a second time, when he faces the former Bellator champ, Alvarez. RDA is coming off a first round stoppage win over Donald Cerrone, after decisioning Anthony Pettis last March to become champ.
Alvarez hasn’t scored one sided wins recently, like RDA, but he did decision Pettis and Gilbert Melendez to lock up a title shot.
Recently the UFC posted a “Battle Lines” episode regarding the compelling match-up, which follows both men as they prepare for the bout. You can check it out below.
