Rafael dos Anjos won’t have any time to rest in the UFC. The lightweight, who submitted Kaml Sharolus last week, is paired up against Anthony Njokuani, on July 11th, when will happen UFC on Fuel TV 4.
He’ll replace Paul Taylor, who, according to Fighters Only, suffered an injury.

“I’m perfect and I asked them for it. I don’t wanna rest”, the lightweight told TATAME this Tuesday. “I’m on a row and I want to keep it that way”.

Rafael defeated Sharolus with a rear naked choke on the first round after knocking him down with a high kick, but hasn’t had time to study his next opponent’s game.

“We signed it yesterday, so I haven’t seen his tapes yet. I’ve seen him fighting Edson (Barboza) Junior, but I didn’t really paid attention to the details. I know he’s a striker”.

His plans of fighting World of Jiu-Jitsu, revealed to TATAME last week, were canceled. “Now I’m focusing on training for my next fight”.
