Rafael dos Anjos faces Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC on FOX 11

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

A lightweight showdown between Rafael dos Anjos and Khabib Nurmagomedov is set for UFC on FOX 11 on April 19 in Orlando, Fla.

Dos Anjos was slated to face Rustam Khabilov at UFC 170, but that was canceled because of an injury to Khabilov, according to UFC officials Tuesday.

Dos Anjos has won five straight fights, including a unanimous decision win over Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 27 this past August.

Nurmagomedov has also won five straight fights. He defeated Pat Healy via unanimous decision at UFC 165 this past September.

Fabricio Werdum will face Travis Browne in the main event.
