Rafael dos Anjos Describes ‘Perfect’ Knockout Against Benson Henderson
UFC lightweight competitor Rafael dos Anjos got the upset win at UFC Fight Night 49, knocking out the former champion in the very first round and truly staking a claim for a title shot soon. As well as a win over the former top divisional player, RDA handed “Smooth” his first knockout loss ever.
The Brazilian grappler has now shown that his striking arsenal is just as formidable as any of his skill set. Although he only has four knockouts as a pro, it’s clear that dos Anjos has been working very hard on his power and accuracy, and the fruits of his labour came together against Henderson last night (Sat. August 23, 2014).
RDA stopped by for a chat with FOX Sports after his biggest career win against “Smooth” and describes his knockout as ‘perfect’. Check out the interview with dos Anjos below, and stay tuned to LowKick.com!
