Rafael dos Anjos will face the stiffest test of his career when he fights former champion Benson Henderson on Saturday, but is confident he can exploit some holes in Henderson's game and get the win:
"He's a tough guy, a former champion, and I think this will be a really big step towards the belt. The belt will come, but I don't want to think too much about it. I really want my title shot, but I'm not stuck in this thinking. I just want to fight and be exciting and that will come naturally," dos Anjos said.
"A big win over Benson Henderson Saturday night and I will fight for the title I'm sure."
"I think I'm stronger than him. I've been in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world a long time, I've been training since I was nine years old and I earned my black belt when I was 20 years old so I've had nine years as a black belt. I see a lot of holes in his game and I'm going to take advantage of that," dos Anjos said.
