Rafael Dos Anjos vs. Benson Henderson: A Full Head-to-Toe Breakdown

This Saturday, former lightweight champion, Benson Henderson, faces off against the No. 5-ranked lightweight, Rafael dos Anjos.

Henderson is 2-0 since losing the title to Anthony Pettis in 2013 and is 9-1 overall in the UFC. He is ranked at No. 1 in the division, and a win over dos Anjos could earn him another shot at the title.

Dos Anjos is 6-1 since 2011, including a win over Donald Cerrone, with the lone loss coming to Khabib Nurmagomedov. He is ranked No. 5, but many aren't talking about him as a real title contender.

A win for dos Anjos will truly cement him as an elite lightweight and will get him some serious consideration for a title shot.

Let's check out a head-to-toe breakdown for this lightweight matchup.
