Philipe Lins vs Andrei Arlovski was the UFC debut for Lins. Definitely a welcome debut. However the fight is postponed because of the coronavirus. However I expect this fight to resume in May, June which is a fight I can’t wait for.
Win over Arlovski will rank Lins in the top 15. Fight against Aleksei Olelinik, Sergei Pavlovich will be pretty cool to watch.
Competition between PFL and UFC is not even close but Philipe Lins trains at American Top Team and I’m sure he’ll be more than ready to fight the best Heavyweights in the world.
End of 2020 Philipe Lins can be a contender for the UFC Heavyweight Title.
