Rafael dos Anjos

Rafael dos Anjos is coming off a win over the very dangerous opponent – Kevin Lee. He defeated Lee by submission (arm-triangle choke) in the 4th round at UFC Fight Night 152 back in May. Now dos Anjos is #3 welterweight in UFC Welterweight Division and if he will keep winning, we will see him fighting for the title in the near future. Former UFC lightweight champion is a dangerous, good coached fighter. He is a powerful, fearsome striker. Also Brazilian is a good grappler, has a third degree BJJ black belt. Dos Anjos’s condition is incredible – he is always ready to fight all 25 minutes

 

Leon ‘Rocky’ Edwards

Leon Edwards is coming off a win over Gunnar Nelson at UFC Fight Night 147 back in March. Edwards hasn’t lost a fight since 2016. He is on 7 fight winning streak and definitely looks forward to extending this streak. ‘Rocky’ is a dangerous Southpaw, has great kickboxing. Maybe he hasn’t got that brutal knockout power, but he is a decent striker, throws a lot of jabs in a fight. Englishman is a very effective defensive and offensive wrestler. Now he is just 27 years old so if Edwards will keep winning, the bright future is waiting for him.
