It’s been announced that Rafael dos Anjos will begin his redemption against Tony Ferguson at The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America Season 3 Finale.
Former Lightweight champion, dos Anjos was on a roll, winning five straight. This included wins against Nate Diaz, “Cowboy” Cerrone, Benson Henderson and of course former champion, Anthony Pettis.
Generally speaking, dos Anjos was looking extremely dominant until he rolled into Eddie Alvarez. In pretty much the perfect performance, Alvarez out punched, out thought and out classed the champion.
Ferguson on the other hand, has won 8 straight fights. Many were touting him as the next contender for the title. It looks likely that that distinction will go to Khabib Nurmagomedov instead.
However a win for “El Cucuy” over the former champion, making it 9 straight should make it next impossible for the UFC to ignore.
The fight takes place on Saturday 5th of November in Mexico City.
