Eddie Alvarez to Challenge Rafael dos Anjos Next
By FCF Staff
The bout will headline UFC FN 90, which will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The card will be broadcast on Fight Pass.
Dos Anjos (25-7) was scheduled to fight Conor McGregor at UFC 196 last month, but after breaking his foot, the Brazilian was forced to withdraw. RDA’s last bout took place in December when he quickly put away Donald Cerrone.
Alvarez (27-4) has worked his way into a title fight after earning consecutive, split decision wins over Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis. The former Bellator champ was decisioned by Cerrone prior to that.
The TUF 23 Finale is scheduled to take place the next night on July 8th, and then on July 9th, UFC 200 will go down.
