Gleison Tibau vs. Rafael Dos Anjos Set For UFC 139

via www.desaboya.com.br

A solid lightweight matchup has been added to the UFC 139 card that will take place November 19th in San Jose, CA. Gleison Tibau will meet Rafael dos Anjos in a bout that should make TV in some form. UFC.com has it:

"Two of the best Brazilian lightweights in the UFC have verbally agreed to fight as Rafael Dos Anjos takes on Gleison Tibau at UFC 139," confirmed UFC president Dana White. The two black belts will war in San Jose this November.

Tibau has won his last two and 6 out of his last 8 overall, with his only losses coming to Jim Miller and Melvin Guillard (which was a controversial split-decision). His last bout against Rafaello Oliveira was particularly impressive, where he picked up the first bonus (submission of the night) of his 14-fight UFC career. Dos Anjos is coming of a 59-second knockout of George Sotiropoulos, which was undoubtedly the biggest win of his career. He has won 3 out of his last 4, with his only loss coming to Clay Guida. He was very competitive in the fight until his jaw was broken by a Guida punch.
