Dos Anjos vs Cerrone 2: Preview

Categories :

This Saturday sees the UFC Lightweight title fight between Rafael dos Anjos and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.

Following on from the major hype surrounding Jose Aldo and Conor McGregors 13 second bout at UFC 194 in Las Vegas, Fox UFC fight night promises to deliver an exciting rematch that has been 2 years in the making.

The first fight between dos Anjos and Cerrone took place on August 28th 2013 where Anjos turned the tables and won the fight with a unanimous decision over the #6 ranked, Cerrone.

Since then Rafael dos Anjos has gone on to earn himself the lightweight champion title with Cerrone finding his own stride and, after four years, earning his first shot at a UFC title.
