Rafael dos Anjos will face Tony Ferguson in Mexico City this November according to a source inside Ferguson's camp who spoke to exclusively.

According to the source the contracts are not yet signed, but the fight is in the works for the pair to meet at The Ultimate Fighter Latin America 3 Finale. The fight will headline the card Nov. 5.

The rumors of this fight have been swirling, and now we know it's definitely more than just talk.

Rafael dos Anjos recently lost his title to Eddie Alvarez at UFC Fight Night Las Vegas, this was the Brazilians first loss since he fought Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2014.

Ferguson is on a stunning eight fight win streak with his eyes on the lightweight belt. If he were to beat dos Anjos it would set him closer to the tile fight he's been asking for.
