He was king of the lightweights for a while, but then he was dethroned by Eddie Alvarez. Now, seeing the success that Donald Cerrone has had by moving up, Rafael dos Anjos has decided to give the bigger boys a try.
Here’s his tweet announcing the move:
I reached the top of LW,it’s been a hard journey make weight every time,now I want to fight at my best,I have new goals, I’m moving to WW

This is a probably a great idea for him. I mean, he did clobber Cerrone, so how bad could RDA do?
