Top-ranked Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight contenders Rafael dos Anjos (No. 3) and Kamaru Usman (No. 6) are gearing up to headline The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 28 Finale, which takes place at Pearl Theatre in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Nov. 30, 2018.
And what event would be complete without an official poster?
The Dos Anjos vs. Usman match up should help clear up the contender picture moving forward. The 28-10 Brazilian used his victory over ex-champion Robbie Lawler at UFC on FOX 26 in Dec. 2017 to catapult himself into an interim title fight opposite Colby Covington earlier this year, which the Brazilian would lose via decision.
Usman (13-1), meanwhile, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Demian Maia this past May. The former TUF 21 winner hasn’t lost since entering UFC three years ago, turning in a perfect (8-0) record with victories over notable up-and-comers like Leon Edwards and Warlley Alves, among others.
Also featured on next month’s FOX Sports 1 fight card is the final round of the combat sports reality show, which is expected to crown winners in the men’s heavyweight division, as well as the women’s featherweight class, which could finally bring about a 145-pound ranking system in the very near future.
Here’s to hoping.
