Philipe Lins (DK: $8,500 FD: $16): Our Must-Have comes into this fight with a 14-3 record. In his 14 wins, he’s won by submission four times and won by (T)KO eight times. Lins is currently a -165 favorite with +120 odds to win this fight inside the distance.
Philipe “Monstro” Lins is currently the PFL Heavyweight Champion and is making his UFC debut. Lins was a highly touted prospect coming out of Brazil and was ranked the second-best light heavyweight even before he signed with a major organization. Since then, he has not disappointed. Back in mid 2018, he made the move up to heavyweight and has looked phenomenal. He signed with PFL when he made that move and went on to finish all four of his opponents to win the PFL Heavyweight Championship. Three of those four opponents were ex-UFC heavyweights.
This event he will face an aging, 41-year-old Andrei Arlovski with his better years behind him. Arlovski is at the end of his career and some question why he hasn’t retired already. He has lost 9 of his last 12 bouts while being finished in five of those fights. He was known as a finisher in his prime, but has yet to finish someone in his last 13 bouts (his last finish was back in 2015). With that being said, we expect seven-year-younger Monstro to continue his finishing ways by putting Arlovski away by knockout. If Arlovski fights his smartest fight, Lins should still win a dominating decision. Make sure to lock Philipe Lins in all formats as our daily fantasy MMA Must-Have.
