Here we go with the first of three huge UFC weigh-ins this week, as Rafael dos Anjos and Eddie Alvarez do battle at UFC Fight Night 90. The Brazilian is coming off a first round TKO victory over Donald Cerrone in late 2015 and wants to put a stamp on his performance against the always game ex-Bellator boss Alvarez. Can the ‘Silent Assassin’ dislodge ‘RDA’ from the 155-pound throne? We’ll find out when they collide on July 7.
We’ve got a great co-main event to look forward to in the form of heavyweight knockout artists Derrick Lewis and Roy Nelson. Although now 40 years old, ‘Big Country’ can still pack a mean punch, but ‘The Beast’ is part of the next generation and faces his sternest test to date in Nelson. Joseph Duffy returns in a lightweight showdown with Mitch Clark, and there’s a host of other well known faces backing up the first of three big UFC events this week.
