Usman & dos Anjos Headline TUF 28 Finale
On Friday night, The Ultimate Fighter airs its 28th finale, and the last to air on Fox Sports 1, from the Palm in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Headlining the event is a welterweight showdown between veteran Rafael dos Anjos, and Kamaru Usman, as Usman looks to add to his twelve fight winning streak.
Usman has been undefeated inside the Octagon since joining the UFC in 2015, with a submission win over Hayder Hassan at The Ultimate Fighter 21 finale. He now enters his second straight UFC main event, looking to follow up his unanimous decision win over Demian Maia at UFC Fight Night Santiago.
dos Anjos returns to the Octagon for the first time since his UFC 225 loss to Colby Covington for the interim welterweight title, which ended a three fight winning streak for dos Anjos. Covington was the only blemish for dos Anjos since moving up to 170 pounds, as the former lightweight champion moved up in weight after two straight losses to Eddie Alvarez and Tony Ferguson.
