  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) March 13, 2015 - SHIFT Freight, a California-based LTL carrier, announces its sponsorship of Rafael dos Anjos in his UFC title fight against defending lightweight champion Anthony "Showtime" Pettis this Saturday, March 14 live at 10 p.m. ET on Pay-Per-View.

    In the biggest fight of his career and the main event of UFC 185, Dos Anjos will appear entering the octagon sporting a SHIFT Freight-branded hat as he attempts to take the title of UFC lightweight champion.

    "As avid UFC fans, we couldn't be more excited to sponsor company friend Rafael Dos Anjos in UFC 185," said SHIFT Freight Vice President of Sales and Strategy Kurt Watkins. "Besides being a great guy and family man, he's a world-class athlete and this is his crowning moment. RDA has been working his entire life to win this championship fight, and we're proud to say that SHIFT Freight is in his corner."

    SHIFT Freight also sponsored Dos Anjos in his last win against Nate Diaz on Dec. 13 - a fight that positioned him as the No. 1 contender against Pettis. With a background in Brazillian jiu-jitsu and recent knockout wins against Benson Henderson and Jason High, Dos Anjos enters Saturday's championship fight as a dangerous, but underrated UFC lightweight challenger.
