<p>Rafael dos Anjos will give 170 pounds a shot.</p> <p>The former lightweight champion announced his move to welterweight on Twitter, saying that he would be able to fight at his best if he didn&rsquo;t make the tough cut to 155 pounds.</p> <p>&ldquo;I reached the top of [lightweight],&rdquo; <a href="https://twitter.com/RdosAnjosMMA/status/817448579140698112">said dos Anjos in the tweet</a>. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s been a hard journey to make weight every time, now I want to fight at my best, I have new goals, I&rsquo;m moving to [welterweight].&rdquo;</p> <p>Dos Anjos won the lightweight title at UFC 185 in March 2015 with a dominant unanimous decision over Anthony Pettis.
