In a an unusual turn of events, Rafael dos Anjos reveals that he thought he had signed to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 170, not Rustam Khabilov, another talented Russian fighter who isn't ranked among the Top 10 Lightweights ... yet.

Wow what a pointless fight then. Dos Anjos is arguably #1 contender and shouod be fighting another contender.This would be like Hendricks fighting Marqaurdt instead of GSP.

I wish it was Khabib he was fighting. That would make more sense. Khabilov is a good fighter but he's pretty unproven at this point.

All those Russians need nicknames. Bellator has Shlemanko, Frodo and then 20 talented goobers all with equally unpronounceable last names.

Both Russians are really good but Khabib Nurmagomedov is among the best in the Division.

How you he possibly confuse Nurmy with Cabbie-Love?

Wow what a pointless fight then. Dos Anjos is arguably #1 contender and shouod be fighting another contender.This would be like Hendricks fighting Marqaurdt instead of GSP.



There are like 3 or 4 number one contenders at lightweight.

sorry but he's not a #1 contender. He's clearly behind Melendez, Thomson, Grant and Nurmagomedov.

Rustam just beat Jorge Masvidal too so he has shown me that he has what it takes to beat RDA.
