Philipe Lins (Bellator) Bellator

Shawn Jordan has a new opponent for his Professional Fighters League debut, as Philipe Lins replaces injured Mike Kyle at the June 7 card in New York, sources told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani.

Lins (10-3) compiled a 3-3 record as a light heavyweight under the Bellator banner between 2014 and 2017. The Brazilian fighter has only gone the distance twice in 13 professional bouts.

Jordan (19-8), who holds victories over the likes of Derrick Lewis (twice), Jared Cannonier and Pat Barry, is 1-1 since leaving the UFC in 2016. “The Savage” debuted in the WSOF cage with a first-round win over Ashley Gooch before losing to then-WSOF champion Blagoi Ivanov in early 2017.

The PFL 1 card takes place at the The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York and features Andre Harrison vs. Jumabieke Tuerxun in the main event.
