As expected, UFC 139 will take place in San Jose, Calif.

UFC brass today officially announced the card will take place in San Jose. Although a venue was not named, the card is expected to take place at HP Pavilion, a longtime home to sister promotion Strikeforce.

Additionally, the promotion also announced Brazilians Rafael dos Anjos and Gleison Tibau will meet at the event.

RDA looked good last time out, but Tibau is big and strong.

So if RDA wins it'd prolly be by submission. But if it goes to a decision prolly Tibau UD if he grapples, but if he stands with RDA he prolly doesn't win.

RDA is the most underrated lightweight in the UFC. He'll win by whatever he wants. Let's not forget that he was dominating Guida before his jaw injury
