Though the event has still not yet been officially announced, UFC 103 will reportedly feature a must-win lightweight contest between Rafael dos Anjos (11-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) and Matt Wiman.

InTheGuard.tv is reporting both fighters have finalized bout agreements for the contest. Initial attempts by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) to reach the fighters for confirmation were unsuccessful.

joe silva is earning his checks more and more lately, that guy doesnt get enough love.

EDIT: btw, obviously i think this is another great matchup.

Very glad to see Dos Anjos get another shot in the UFC, after two competitive fights.

But bad news for him he has to face wiman, who I think can win a decision or tko.

Rafael is a contender for sure, he has had great showings so far just bad luck I guess. I am confident in Rafael for this fight.

Sucks that this is a must win for both guys as both give their all and have had really enjoyable fights. Anjos sub round 2.

Great matchup, I'd hate to see other guy get the boot, but sometimes that added pressure makes for the best fights. I hope they both have a good showing.
