Dos Anjos is looking to defend his title for the second time. He is currently on a five-fight win streak that has been very dominant, with three KO wins and two decisive decisions. Alvarez has won his last two fights in the UFC, beating Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis by split decision to earn this title fight. A former champion in Bellator, Alvarez knows what it is like to compete in five-round title fights.

Both of these men can fight anywhere, as they have strong grappling and powerful punching. However, Alvarez hasn’t been showing the type of improvement that Dos Anjos has. There was a time that RDA was just known as a submission grappler, but he has since developed a very aggressive and powerful striking game. Alvarez isn’t likely going to want to get into a standup war with him, but he also might not be able to match the champion in grappling power. I suspect Dos Anjos will be able to slowly fatigue Alvarez before finishing the fight with a flurry in the later rounds of the bout.
