Just when you thought a free PPV couldn’t get any better, it does! UFC 267 was already gearing up to be a stacked card with two title fights (Jan Blachowicz vs. Glover Teixeira & Aljamain Sterling vs. Petr Yan) and now the UFC has added a can’t miss lightweight fight between #5 Islam Makhachev & #7 Rafael Dos Anjos.
Simply put, this fight will fuck. Islam is looking to solidify his contender status against a former champion who never turns down a fight in RDA.
This has all the makings for “Fight of The Night” and hopefully these two get 5 rounds to give us the sales pitch on why they should fight for the title.
Due to the unpredictability of the sport I refuse to give a prediction on this fight until we’re a few days out from the bout.
And if you want to hear what that prediction will be you’ll have to tune into The Branded MMA Show! The only MMA show @ Branded Sports worth listening too!
