As promised, UFC delivered the full “Battle Lines: Dos Anjos vs. Alvarez” episode on Monday afternoon.
Featured above is the full preview special focusing on the upcoming UFC Lightweight Championship bout between Rafael dos Anjos and former Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez.
The Dos Anjos vs. Alvarez fight is scheduled to headline the UFC Fight Night: Dos Anjos vs. Alvarez event, which is scheduled for UFC’s International Fight Week on July 7, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The official description for the above Battle Lines: Dos Anjos vs. Alvarez episode reads as follows:
“Get an intimate look at the lives of the two men training for their upcoming UFC lightweight title fight. Champion Rafael Dos Anjos isolates himself from his family by traveling to the busy metropolis of Singapore, studying Muay Thai from the best and teaching jiu-jitsu — the sport that helped him rediscover his passion for fighting. Meanwhile challenger Eddie Alvarez, having already captured championships in multiple other organizations, takes the opposite approach, living at home and training not far from the mean Philly streets that produced him.”
