WHAT A FIGHT! 4 STARS FOR ME!
just one thing……I would not be surprised if dos anjos tests positive for some drugs….he played with the champion!! amazing performance by the Brazilian!! if he is clean i’m very happy he is the new champ but everybody knows he wil not last too much because the real Ufc lightweight champion is (and will be) Nurmagomedov who has alread defeated easily dos anjos last year.
