    Default Rafael dos Anjos vs. Rustam Khabilov reportedly added to UFC 170

    Rafael dos Anjos vs. Rustam Khabilov reportedly added to UFC 170

    Top 10 lightweight Rafael dos Anjos has verbally agreed to face Rustam Khabilov at UFC 170 in Las Vegas.

    In a bit of surprising matchmaking, surging lightweight contender Rafael dos Anjos is not getting a top 10 opponent for his next bout. According to Fox Sports' Damon Martin, the Brazilian will instead be paired up with Rustam Khabilov at UFC 170 in Las Vegas on February 22nd. Verbal agreements have been made but the UFC has not made the booking official.

    huh. I would have matched him up with Nate.

    RDA doesn't finish fights. I don't think he speaks English, he's not charismatic or controversial. He's not going to get any kind of push from the UFC, you know that.

    He's doomed to be buried on the undercard for all of eternity.

    I think this will be a good fight. It's a great opportunity for Khabilov to get a win over a top ten opponent. I'll pull for him, but I think it'll be close.

    Sooooo, Khabib vs. Nate then I suppose?

    Unless TJ can come back healthy within the next few months.

    Still wondering if they don't book a super fun fight with Nate and maybe Diego, Gomi and I know the ranking is all askew here, but I'd really dig Nate/Masvidal....

    dos anjos used to finish almost all of his fights I think he was the first to knockout George Sots when he was on that winning streak. It wasn't until recently that he started winning decisions but they were against some solid competition

    No disrespect to him, he's a great fighter and deserves a top 10 opponent.
