It's hard having one fighter in your top five favorites who constantly ends up injured.. but when you have two it's just depressing.. Taylor and Mike Swick need to take a step back and rethink everything.

But on the bright side this gives us another chance to see just how good Anjos is.

I guess that fight is not meant to happen.

A better matchup, but harder time picking the winner.

Njo looks good sometimes, and other times not so much. Same with RDA.

This is a way better fight anyways, Taylor would have made for a good stand up fight but I see this fight being more exciting

Ive said it before and I'll say it again, Dos Sanjos is the best 5-4 fighter in the UFC. He's looked awesome, even in defeats like the fights with Stephens, Guida and Griffin. WAR Dos Anjos!

Really? I thought the original fight would easily get FOTN.

That first part made me chuckle.

I totally agree though. I love this fight and i think Dos Anjos takes it via UD.

Dos Anjos' stand-up and striking has come a long way, so it will be interesting to see how long he stands with Njokuani for, either way Dos Anjos is more consistent and Njokuani has a hard time with good grapplers as well...should be a submission win for Dos Anjos but could go the distance.

RDA by sub. Much like Etim fight.
