UFC on Fuel TV 3 Results: Rafael dos Anjos Gets Past Kamal Shalorus

Rafael Suanes, US PRESSWIRE

Rafael dos Anjos came all the way in from Brazil to fight Kamal Shalorus at UFC on Fuel 3. But once he got there, he didn't waste much time in the Octagon on Tuesday night in Fairfax, Va.

Dos Anjos (16-6) made quick work of Kamal Shalorus (7-3-2) in a lightweight bout and put himself in the early lead for a submission of the night bonus, winning via rear-naked choke at 1:40 of the first round.

The Brazilian drilled Shalorus with a bulls-eye of a left-legged head kick, then instantly swarmed Shalorus on the ground. Dos Anjos got the Iranian's back and made like B.J. Penn in using textbook positioning to wrap up his foe and sink in the choke. Shalorus had no choice but to tap.

It could be that Dos Anjos, who has been a .500 fighter since joining the UFC in 2008, is finally gaining some momentum. He's won two of his past three fights, including a knockout of George Sotiropolous. Shalorus, who once headlined a nationally televised WEC event, has dropped three straight fights.
