    Default Rafael dos Anjos: Two opponents have broken hands on my titanium jaw

    http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/0...y-titanium-jaw

    Since a loss via injury to Clay Guida in 2010, Rafael dos Anjos has won five of six fights and entered the UFC lightweight picture. If his jaw has looked unnaturally strong since then, there's a reason for that.

    Dos Anjos (19-6 MMA, 8-4 UFC), who meets Donald Cerrone (20-5-1 MMA, 7-2 UFC) in tonight's UFC Fight Night 27 co-headliner, survived until the third round during his fight with Guida at UFC 117. However, Guida broke his opponent's jaw in the first round, and after pressing a forearm against it in the third round, dos Anjos was forced to tap out from the pain.

    Since then, though, he's 5-1 with just a split-decision loss to Gleison Tibau. And he believes he now has an unexpected weapon in his arsenal.

    "That break happened when we were openly trading during the first minute of our fight," dos Anjos told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "He broke my mandible in two parts, but I kept on fighting.

    "Nowadays, I have 20 screws and four titanium plates. Since then I broke two hands with my chin: Tibau's and (Anthony) Njokuani's."

    After reading the title, initial thought was "didn't Guida smash your jaw?"

    DAMN early morning reading!

    Donald Cerrone is focused on Rafael Dos Anjos, not assault charge in Colorado
    "Cowboy" breaks it down for ESPN:


    "I'm 100 percent devoted to this fight [with dos Anjos] and that's it. My mind is where it's supposed to be, and the legal matter has nothing to do with it. I'm 100 percent ready, my camp was good, and I feel great. This is the year that I feel I'm getting the belt. I don't know who is in line, whether it's TJ Grant or Josh Thomson. I don't know who's sitting in the slot. But hopefully a win over dos Anjos will put me in line with them, and then a win over them will get me a title shot. That's the overall game plan."
