Brazilian’s Gleison Tibau and Rafael dos Anjos will meet in a lightweight bout likely to be on the preliminary card of the night at UFC 139 in San Diego, Californi on November 19th, 2011.

Tibau, speaking via UFC.com, said:

“Two of the best Brazilian lightweights in the UFC have verbally agreed to fight as Rafael Dos Anjos takes on Gleison Tibau at UFC 139.”

Tibau has picked up back-to-back wins in 2011, defeating Kurt Pellegrino via unanimous decision and Rafaello Oliveira via submission. The Brazilian powerhouse has won four of his last five fights inside the distance.

Dos Anjos rebounded from a loss last year to Clay Guida and a number of months out through injury when he knocked out George Sotiropoulos in the very first round at UFC 132 last month in Las Vegas, Nevada.
