Paul Felder v Rafael dos Anjos Betting Tips | 00:00 am Sunday, 15th November 2020
Dos Anjos is back to 155lbs after a period in the welterweight and should have faced Russian star Islam Makhachev. The Russian, however, has pulled out and Paul Felder, who was due to attend the event as a commentator, will be entering the Octagon for the second time in 2020.
Felder journey to the UFC lightweight title shot was halted in February when he lost to Dan Hooker. He is still in the top 10 though, and a win over Dos Anjos will propel him into the top five.

Who will win Paul Felder v Rafael dos Anjos fight?
Dos Anjos is coming here with a bad 1-4 record in the last five fights, but it has to be said that he faced some of the best in the class during this period. He managed to cause an upset to former champion Robbie Lawler and has also submitted Kevin Lee, so the Brazilian has to be treated with respect. Switching back to 155lbs could be an excellent decision for the Brazilian who should feel a lot more at home in this class.
In normal circumstances we would go for Dos Anjos to win by a decision as taking on Felder is not an easy task. But Felder has decided to step in with just 4 days notice, and this might have a detriment effect on his chances. We believe that Felder will start fast and fade fast, so backing Dos Anjos to win by Submission looks the best value here.
