Dos Anjos-Lee Headlines UFC Rochester

The UFC debuts in Rochester for UFC Fight Night: Rochester on ESPN+, with a welterweight main event.

In the main event, Rafael Dos Anjos returns to the octagon to take on former lightweight title contender, Kevin Lee, in Lee’s first fight at 170-pounds.

The former lightweight champion looks to bounce back in back-to-back losses to current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and to Colby Covington for the interim welterweight crown in 2018. Prior to the losses, Dos Anjos was on a three fight winning streak since jumping up to 170 pounds.

For Lee, he jumps up to 170 pounds following a unanimous decision loss to Al Iaquinta in December at UFC Fight Night Milwaukee.

The co-main event will see Sijara Eubanks fighting for the first time since UFC 230, as she looks to end the undefeated record of Aspen Ladd.

Ladd has finished all but one of her opponents in her career, including former championship contender Tonya Evinger, and Muay Thai world champion Lina Lansberg.

Eubanks will mark her debut at bantamweight after being unable to make weight at UFC 230 and prior to the finals of The ultimate Fighter 26.
