This is a heck of a fight in the welterweight division.
A marquee fight is being made for the TUF 28 finale on November 30th in Las Vegas. A pair of highly ranked Welterweights will clash with title implications on the line. Kamaru Usman will face former lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos in a fight between the number 3 and 6 ranked fighters in the division.
The fight was first reported by Raphael Marinho of the Brazilian MMA site Combate! He tweeted that the fight was being made, and it has since been confirmed by multiple sources. It should definitely be a heck of a fight. The winner could find himself in line for a world title shot.

Usman has been looking for a ranked opponent to fight, and with Dos Anjos ranked at number 3, he certainly found one. Rafael lost his last fight, dropping a five-round decision to Colby Covington for the Interim welterweight title. Usman, on the other hand, has not lost since joining the UFC and is a perfect 8-0 in the world-famous Octagon.
The TUF 28 finale takes place at the Palms on November 30th and features the debut of Valentina Shevchenko’s sister Antonina in a bout with Ashlee Evans Smith as well as Bryan Caraway facing Pedro Munoz.
