dos Anjos: 'A lot of holes' in Benson Henderson's game


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.

Did you enjoy the Raffaellos? You forgot it comes in Badass Muay Thai flavor as well.

I foresee yet another UD for Benson, apparently all things are possible through the power of christ except a knockout.

Im interested in this matchup just to see how the LW title picture is shaping up. I dont really want to see another Benson/Pettis match just yet. We got Pettis/Melendez and if Pettis wins, probably the winner of Cowboy/Alvarez. Hopefully by then, if Benson wins 1 or 2 more fights, then it would be cool to see him fight Pettis again.

I think benson wins this fight relatively easily and gets a unanimous decision victory. He will most likely fight the winner of Alveraz vs cowboy.

Khabib is not a bigger test than Benson. Former champ who has only lost to Pettis is the last few years. Benson is a step above khabib at this point.
