John Allan

The Hunter


Still searching for first UFC win
Light HeavyweightUFC
November 6, 2021
Allan lost to Dustin Jacoby via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 27-30) at UFC 268 on Saturday in New York City.
Originally scheduled to fight Aleksa Camur, Allan managed to see the final bell despite entering as a +300 underdog against Jacoby. To Allan's credit, he settled in a bit as the bout progressed. As one would predict, he had difficulty with the stand-up game of the talented Jacoby, but Allan's chin held up just fine. Allan's power is legitimate, but he has never been able to get on track under the UFC banner. He was submitted on Dana White's Contender Series: Brazil back in August 2018 and is without a victory (0-2, 1NC) in three official UFC bouts. There is no guarantee he gets a fourth opportunity.

Allan (13-6-0, 1 NC) is now scheduled to fight Dustin Jacoby (15-1-1) in a light heavyweight matchup at Saturday's UFC 268 in New York City after Allan's initial opponent, Aleksa Camur (6-2-0), withdrew Monday due to an unspecified injury, Marcel Dorff of reports.

Controlled by Roman Dolidze
Light HeavyweightUFC
December 5, 2020
Allan lost to Roman Dolidze via split decision (28-29, 29-29, 27-30) at UFC on ESPN 19 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Allan hung around and was a threat throughout the course of the 15-minute bout, but to suggest he won this fight was laughable. Allan was particularly effective when the two men were matched on the feet, but he spent far too much of this fight being dominated by Dolidze on the mat. Allan has some power, but his gas tank is questionable and his overall offensive arsenal is pretty limited. It's early in his run, but the 27-year-old Brazilian has the look of nothing more than valuable roster depth for the UFC.
