Although Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Rafael dos Anjos has lost both his fights since arriving in the UFC in November 2008, he has actually looked quite impressive. With a record of 11-4 and only 24-years-old, this young man is only getting started.
In both his UFC fights he has twisted his opponents into human pretzels with very unique submission holds with the bell saving his opponents both times. Rafael even won “Fight of the Night” honors in his last bout with Tyson Griffin at “UFC Fight Night 18” in Nashville, Tennessee on April 1st.
PRO MMA (promma.info) had the great pleasure of speaking to Rafael this week to talk about his last couple of fights, his time with the UFC, his background, his opinion on fellow Brazilian Anderson Silva, fighters he likes to watch, and more.
