And so it begins...
Reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos will defend his 155-pound title against former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in the main event of UFC Fight Night 90, locked and loaded for later tonight (Thurs., July 7, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, streaming exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
Dos Anjos (25-7) has not lost since getting outwrestled by Khabib Nurmagomedov in April 2014, but made up for lost ground with a torrid six-fight winning streak that includes three knockout finishes. Alvarez (27-4), meanwhile, shook off a UFC debut loss to Donald Cerrone to win two straight over Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis.
Here to break it all down is UFC color commentator Joe Rogan.
