Light heavyweight contenders Philipe Lins and Ion Cutelaba are set to face off at UFC 299 in Miami on March 9.

Miami’s about to witness a light heavyweight showdown. Philipe Lins and Ion Cutelaba, both top contenders in the light heavyweight category, are set to clash at UFC 299.

Lins, a former PFL heavyweight champ, joined the UFC in 2020. His start wasn’t the best, losing his first two fights. But then, he dropped down to 205 pounds.
