Disaster strikes in Vegas
December 6, 2021
Allen lost to Chris Curtis via TKO (punches) at 1:58 of Round 2 at UFC Vegas 44 on Saturday.
Allen entered this fight as the biggest betting favorite on the card at roughly (-365), but it was a brutal night at the office for the 25-year-old prospect. The two exchanged shots early in a close first round that saw Allen attempt a heel hook, but the submission never came to fruition and Allen found himself behind in the striking numbers. Curtis went to the body even more frequently in Round 2, and that investment paid off when he followed up one body shot with a clean right hand. Allen remained upright and tried to cover up, but Curtis blitzed and landed a big knee that floored Allen. Despite the loss, Allen sits at 5-2 in the UFC and should be given plenty of time to get back on track.
Gets yet another opponent
November 22, 2021
Allen will now take on Chris Curtis on Dec. 4 in Las Vegas, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Allen is apparently a bad-luck charm, as first Brad Tavares and then Roman Dolidze both had to withdraw from the matchup for undisclosed reasons. In Curtis, he'll face an opponent who's completed less than a full round of UFC action, as he only required 4:27 to knock out Phil Hawes in his UFC debut in early November. Allen will be looking for his third straight victory and has won five of his first six UFC fights.
Opponent changed for next fight
November 18, 2021
Allen will now take on Roman Dolidze on Dec. 4 after Brad Tavares withdrew for undisclosed reasons, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Allen has gotten off to a 5-1 start thus far in his UFC career, most recently beating Punahele Soriano by unanimous decision in July. In Dolidze, he'll face an opponent who's won three of his first four UFC fights, beating Laureano Staropoli by unanimous decision in his latest trip to the Octagon in June.
Next fight booked
September 14, 2021
Allen will take on Brad Tavares in a middleweight bout at the UFC event Dec. 4, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Allen is coming off a unanimous decision win over Puna Soriano back in July. Prior to that he submitted Karl Roberson back in April. He will look to take down Tavares, who is 6-3 in his last nine fights.
No grappling required in win
July 24, 2021
Allen defeated Puna Soriano via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC on ESPN 27 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
With nine wins coming by submission, it was a bit surprising that Allen didn't try to get the fight to the ground. There was no need for jiujitsu on this night, though, as Allen was able to use his length to score with jabs and body kicks after weathering the storm in round one. Allen also looked a bit more defensively responsible in this one than he has in past fights. If the 25-year-old can bring his level of striking anywhere close to his grappling, the middleweight division could have a real problem on its hands. Allen improves to 17-4 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.
