Makhachev (18-1) enters the contest on a six-fight win streak, most recently defeating Davi Ramos by unanimous decision at UFC 242 in December of last year. He is unbeaten since suffering his only career loss to Adriano Martins five years ago.
Next Saturday’s show marks dos Anjos’s return to lightweight after a 4-4 stint at welterweight that saw him compete for an interim title. Dos Anjos (29-13) has lost four of his past five fights, but moves back to the division in which he won and successfully defended a UFC title.
