MMA Crossfire Vault – Rafael dos Anjos news

Dos Anjos, 32, achieved his greatest success in 2014-2015, defeating Benson Henderson for the lightweight belt and defending it three times before losing it to Eddie Alvarez.

A recent disappointing loss to Tony Ferguson at UFC Fight Night 98 likely reinforced the decision.

Who dos Anjos will face in his first welterweight bout has not been released as of this writing.
