Former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos will welcome Kevin Lee to the welterweight division in the main event of UFC Rochester on May 18.

Dos Anjos (28-11) is coming off of back-to-back losses to Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman, most recently dropping a unanimous decision to Usman last November. RDA holds notable Octagon victories over “Cowboy” Cerrone (x2), Benson Henderson, Nate Diaz, Anthony Pettis, and Robbie Lawler. He currently sits at #4 on the official UFC welterweight fighter rankings.

Lee (17-4) is coming off of a unanimous decision loss in a rematch against Al Iaquinta last December. “The Motown Phenom” has defeated the likes of Francisco Trinaldo, Michael Chiesa, and Edson Barboza inside of the UFC Octagon. He’ll be making his welterweight debut when he takes on dos Anjos.
