In the card's exciting main event, former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos asserted himself as one of the welterweight division's top contenders, defeating former titleholder Robbie Lawler with a dominant, unanimous decision win.

Lawler had no answer to dos Anjos' striking power.

Dos Anjos seemed to have the flawless strategy to dismantle Lawler as he chopped away at his foundation with a series of brutal leg kicks before then pressing forward with a flurry of strikes over and over again.

Russell Westbrook does not 'give a damn about percentages'
While the emphasis will be on those overtime periods, this game was a microcosm of the Thunder's season as a whole. Russell Westbrook was able to get the last laugh when after the game was over, waving to Embiid in return.

"I'm just on my way to a second belt", dos Anjos said.

But the next man in line is welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who recently chose to undergo shoulder surgery and take some time out on the sidelines.

Dos Anjos is now 3-0 at 170 pounds while Lawler is 1-2 in his last three fights. "I just go and do a great performance like I did tonight. He's beat nobody. He beat Demian Maia, but he looked really bad when he fought Demian, and I have no comments on that guy". He's going to have a lot of things to worry about. "Robbie Lawler is a very unsafe opponent and he's knocked out so many different people, but just being honest and keeping it 100 percent, I'm the champion for a reason".

Dos Anjos (28-9), mentioned before the bout that he believed this fight should have been for the interim welterweight title.

"My hands are hurting because I hit that guy in the head and he's got a tough head", dos Anjos said.
