Rafael dos Anjos weigh-ins

On the heels of Rafael dos Anjos losing his UFC lightweight championship to Eddie Alvarez on July 7th in Las Vegas, the former champ is looking to return to the win column before the end of the year.

News surfaced this week from Champions.co that dos Anjos would be returning to the Octagon at the TUF Latin America 3 Finale on November 5th in Mexico City to fight #3 ranked lightweight Tony Ferguson in a pivotal lightweight showdown.

Ferguson, who is riding an 8-fight win streak, is coming off a 2nd round submission win over Lando Vannata in a ‘Fight of the Night’ performance. With a win over dos Anjos he very well could secure himself a lightweight title shot.

Do you think he’ll be able to pull it off?
