Currently riding a four-fight win streak over such notable names as Evan Dunham and Mark Bocek among others, you could argue that Rafael Dos Anjos would be in line for a title shot should he get past Donald Cerrone tonight. Not that he’s favored to, but considering the last two people to beat “Cowboy” received title shots thereafter, a win for Dos Anjos would easily place him on the shortlist of contenders to say the least. Unfortunately for Cerrone, Dos Anjos will be bringing a secret weapon with him into the octagon tonight. No, not TRT, we’re talking about HIS TERMINATOR JAW.
It turns out that after Clay Guida broke the Brazilian’s jaw back at UFC 117 in 2010, Dos Anjos underwent a surgery to ensure that he would never suffer the same injury again ever. “Nowadays, I have 20 screws and four titanium plates. Since then I broke two hands with my chin: Tibau’s and (Anthony) Njokuani’s,” Dos Anjos tells MMAJunkie, bringing to question why someone would be allowed to compete in a combat sport with metal-reinforced body parts.
While it was long believed that Kimbo’s beard was the strongest substance legally allowed to be attached to a UFC fighter, Dos Anjos’ shocking revelation has opened the floodgates for MMA fighters with prosthetic appendages to rally for their rightful place in the UFC. Join us after the jump to see what we mean.
After hearing word that he would be fighting a half-man, half-machine X-men character in tonight’s Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2 co-main event, Cerrone told CagePotato in an exclusive interview that he’ll “see how that Brazilian cyborg bitch likes the taste of my platinum boogie board.” Tune in to FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. EST to see if steel chairs and/or laser shields somehow make their way into the equation.
