Rafael dos Anjos vs Rafael Fiziev - UFC Fight Night: All you need to know

The lightweight division is one of the most competitive in the UFC and future title hopefuls Rafael dos Anjos and Rafael Fiziev clash this weekend.

Dos Anjos is 2-0 since returning to lightweight in 2020, earning decision victories over Paul Felder and Renato Moicano.

The Brazilian, who is 9/5 to pick up a third successive win, is ranked #7 and another triumph will put him in the conversation for a title shot in 2023.

He boasts a huge amount of experience in the UFC, making his debut in 2008, and the former lightweight champion is targeting one final run at the gold.

However, the hugely exciting Fiziev, ranked #10, stands in his way in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Fiziev, who can be backed at 5/11 to get the win, is at the other end of the scale in terms of experience, fighting just six times in the UFC after making his debut in 2019.

The 29-year-old lost on debut against Magomed Mustafaev but has won his following five contests to emerge as a potential title challenger, although he'll need to prove himself against Dos Anjos.

Seven of Fiziev's 11 victories have come by KO or TKO, including two of his last three, but Dos Anjos has only lost two of his 44 bouts via that route.

The overwhelming majority of Dos Anjos' fights (26) have gone the distance with 16 wins by decision and 10 defeats.
